Sad news as NVIDIA's Senior North America Marketing Manager, Phil Scholz, died a few days ago trying to save someone who was on the tracks of an express train. A train traveling between 50 and 70MPH hit both men, but Phil didn't survive.

The full story isn't there yet and the person Phil was trying to save remains in critical condition. It looked like the man didn't want to be saved, but we won't know the full story until the person can speak on what happened between him and Phil. 

I have never met Phil, but have met a lot of great folks at NVIDIA and my heart goes out to that family having lost one of their own. Phil was 35.
