Well someone has to do it..

By on

Well someone has to do it.. My friend said he once saw someone fall onto tracks and a bystander jumped down to save him only to be yelled at and scolded by an Mbta man who wasn't going to help.

WHDH reports it was a woman

age 44 who walked right off the edge of the platform, as seen on MBTA video. So much money wasted on ineffective road bump outs yet nothing for open pits with exposed high voltage wiring.
