    If I was there I would have attempted to save the fallen man.

    The Good Samaritan has spoken.

    So how many people were delayed because of this idiot? How can it be an “accident” when the train is on tracks isolated from people by a raised platform?

    Trains should have cattle prows on them again. Just shove these idiots off the tracks and keep rolling. It’s a good thing – they’re out of the gene pool than.

      I would hope you never have to take the subway and faint or catch a seizure or something and fall in the tracks and have it run over you. Or maybe i do want this to happen to you. Stop being an idiot your self.

      1. Faints A Lot says:

        Ah yes, the old standby: “unexpected” faints or seizures. Bullsh@t. Anyone with any brains know that there is no such thing. Faints and seizures do not arise out of the blue. Except for Constantly Stupid Imbeciles (CSI).
