I've often wondered

what the protocol is for bystanders who see someone fall on the tracks. Call 911? Press the red intercom button? Jump down and haul them out? (No, probably not.) Get ready to flag down the next approaching train so they don't run over the person?

(Recruit people to do each of those?)
