14 year old derails trams in Lodz

A boy of 14 has been arrested in Poland for hacking into Lodz transport system and severely disrupting the city's tram network. Adam Dabrowski, described by teachers as an electronics genius, caused the derailment of four trams which injured many passengers on board. With a device he made using a TV remote control, Dabrowski changed the track points. Police say he had targeted "the best junctions to move trams around and what signals to change." The police spokesman added: "He treated it like any other schoolboy might a giant train set – but it was lucky nobody was killed."
