Medical Emergency Much?

You people are kind of sick. The article mentions she may have had a medical emergency. It's one thing to snark about drunken morons who make bad decisions, but an elderly woman who may have been in serious trouble? Really?

Exactly. This rarely happens

Exactly. This rarely happens in countries which take better care of their elderly and have better public transit. Leaving the elderly and infirm no other transportation option aside from driving is a grave disservice to both them and the endangered public at large.

RIP

It seems like a lot of citizens have lost their lives in bizarre incidents on the T this year. May she rest in peace.
