Seriously, Do Not Walk Between Cars on a Moving Subway Train


Arabell Lin, 25, was attempting to switch subway cars on the N line when she slipped and fell down to the tracks back in March. (The Post reports that Lin had a prosthetic right leg, but it was impossible to know whether this was part of the cause of the accident that killed her.) Her fall properly triggered an emergency brake, and the operator of the train took seven minutes to walk up and down to see what was the matter. But when the operator didn’t see anything, he or she resumed the trip, running over Lin’s body with the remaining six cars of the train. Then ten more trains ran over her.

Honestly, people, do not walk between the cars on a moving train. No matter how many legs you have.
