Shortly after 9 a.m., inbound Red Line service was halted so that EMTs could take a sick passenger off a train at Kendall. But service was delayed even before that due to another passenger who decided the best way to get help was to pull the emergency brake - while the train was still in the tunnel between Central and Kendall. A passenger on the train reports via e-mail:
Some idiot pulled the emergency brake in response. Conductor was not happy about that. We were stuck between Central and Kendall for about 8 minutes.
