Passengers Save A Visually Impaired Man Who Fell Into The Metro Tracks
It’s always nice to witness heroism in action, especially in our nation’s capital and the surrounding areas.
According to NBC Washington, one blind man was lent a life-saving hand from Metro passengers who noticed he fell in the train tracks.
A Metro security camera captured the scene at the Medical Center station in Maryland. Last Tuesday, the man was using his walker to find his way around the platform. He gets closer and closer to the edge of the tracks, and right when it seems he’s about to move away, he falls into the tracks.
He manages to stand up, and a nearby passenger eventually notices that he fell. They run to the edge of the tracks to try and pull the man onto the platform. At first, one person makes the effort, but eventually, more people come to assist with the rescue moments before a train arrives.
Metro says the man was taken to the hospital to get checked out. He suffered minor injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
