Today I was thrilled to see the story of a subway train operator in Boston who stopped a subway train in time before striking a woman who fell onto the tracks due to intoxication. The train operator stated that she was just "doing her job" - which is absolutely true. Subway train operators are trained to be on the lookout for people who may fall onto subway tracks and take all reasonable steps to stop the train before running them over.
As you may know, I recently obtained a multi-million dollar verdict on behalf of a young man who fell on subway tracks (see prior post on this blog) - also as a result of intoxication - unfortunately for my client,the train operator did not perform as trained, unlike the subway train operator in Boston. He did not stop the train, even though he had much more time to do so than the Boston operator.
The woman in Boston is very lucky. Good Job Ms. Train Operator!!
