That’s when Stanton was riding the G train in Brooklyn when it suddenly came to an abrupt stop.
After being held in the train for 20 minutes, Stanton said they pulled into the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. The delay was apparently caused after a woman tumbled onto the tracks as another train was arriving.READ MORE: NYCFC Reaches Eastern Conference Final After Penalty Shootout
Stanton was told by another passenger that the woman had a seizure and fell.
Stanton snapped a shot of the photo the other passenger took, which shows just how close the train came to hitting the woman.
The photo has gone viral online.MORE NEWS: Nets Edge Knicks On James Johnson's Free Throws
The incident comes as the Tranport Workers Union has launched a campaign to get trains to slow down before they enter the station. The campaign comes in the wake of two recent subway track deaths. The MTA has called that campaign a bid by the TWU to draw attention to their contract negotiations.
