Angel was hit and killed by an Amtrak train on Wednesday. His family said he was the light of the family and his mother's miracle baby after being told she could not have children.

"He was the kindest guy you will ever meet," said Leticia Trujillo, Angel's cousin.

Angel prided himself on being a talented skateboarder, musician and artist.

"He was the type of person that wouldn't want anybody to cry or have a sad face," Trujillo said. "If he saw you with that, he would try to make you smile."

Police said the teen did not stand a chance against the Amtrak train, which was going 70 mph, as he walked home from school on the tracks.

"The conductor said he saw the victim and started braking and sounded his horn," said Bernalillo Police Chief Julian Gonzales.

Now the community and Angel's family cannot believe he is gone.

"It still feels like a dream because he was the spark of the family, the light of the family," Trujillo said.

Angel went to Bernalillo High School and sang in the school's choir. On Thursday, the campus was solemn.
