Twice in three days, men pulled off Blue Line tracks

A man wound up on the tracks at Airport station around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday. The train operator managed to stop the train before hitting him. An MBTA spokesman declined to say how the man ended up on the tracks but said he was not seriously hurt (click to see a photo from the scene, forwarded by Heath - it's not gory, but could be disturbing).

Around 1 p.m. today, Jenn Martinelli reports:

A guy just fell on the tracks at Maverick Station right before the train arrived. 3 people jumped right down to help. The train was almost at the station and they just jumped right down and got him.

C'mon, that's not a 'disturbing' picture. Do you want what goes on in our world to be perfectly sanitized before the news reaches you?

I don't particularly care if it's left up or removed, but I just don't see what it adds to the story at all. Granted I have an irrational fear of being pushed onto train tracks exacerbated by those NYC subway situations, I was just pointing out that it's not the best thing to come across on this site.


I was one of those guys today before 1 pm. Am I on crack, or is this story about another incident? This picture certainly doesn't reflect wht happened today!
