BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Caleb Bankston, a former contestant on the "Survivor" reality show, has died in a railway accident in Alabama. He was 26.

Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Bill Yates says Bankston, who was working at the Alabama Warrior Railway in Birmingham, was thrown from a train in a partial derailment on Tuesday.

The Alabama Warrior Railway, only a few miles long, is used by industries in Birmingham to haul coal and other materials.

Bankston, of Collinsville, Alabama, appeared on "Survivor: One World" in 2012 and "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" in 2013, according to the show's website.
