Bluebell is also known for the supernatural and unexplained, including a large number of UFO sightings (largely due to its small population and number of reports, the greatest number per capita of any other area in the U.S. ) and several haunted sites. There are legends surrounding Bluebell Cemetery and a green light which is said to appear there on certain times of the year. A former chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across from Bluebell Park and next to Bluebell Store that was converted into a private residence decades ago is alleged to be haunted by a young boy, who can still be heard bouncing his rubber ball in what was the former coal room.

What is railroad worker injury law?

Railroad worker injuries are covered under the Federal Employees Liability Act which requires that a railroad maintains their fleet, ensuring that their trains are in good working order and free of defects. If a railroad does not comply with these standards, they may be liable for injuries to their workers. Damages railroad workers may receive include medical treatments, present and future lost wages and mental trauma. An injury on the railway can range from a minor sprain to a spinal injury so severe that it leads to death. Some of the most common injuries that affect railway workers are head trauma, knee injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain trauma or spinal cord injuries. The Federal Employees Liability Act protects railroad workers and others as diverse as clerical employees whose day-to-day functions do not directly involve trains or outdoor activity.
