“ A New York City subway rider died on Thursday after his pants became caught in the doors of a Q train late Wednesday night as he exited, causing him to be dragged along the platform and then onto the tracks, the police said.

The episode took place just before midnight at the Avenue M station in Midwood, Brooklyn “

Horrific. A similar incident occurred around here when a man got his arm stuck in the doors and the doors did not automatically open to release, as they are supposed to do.

It's like those poor individuals who get caught in escalators or elevator doors. We use them everyday without a thought, but they can be deadly.

The other death in the news currently is the worker at a recycling plant who went missing. They have found traces of his DNA in the plastic shredder.

3.6 million subway trips in a day according to the story. That's unbelievable. Statistically, nothing really happened.

Which brings to mind the story of a worker whose clothing got caught in a metal lathe. There was a video that was somehow posted with it that somehow got used uncensored/blurred. The poor dude was standing there and then he was, just, gone, red mist everywhere. A worker cut the power and that’s when I closed the video.

If that video isn’t used in safety training, it should be. With so many of our inventions you only get one mistake.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

When I was really young, an escalator in, I think, the Garden State Racetrack had been worked on and turned back on without replacing the plate at the top. A father and daughter rode up it and, well, all I remember is that they were dead.

To this day, I won't ride an escalator until I see someone else ride safely to the top. eye rolling smileysad smiley

Still some confusion about what happened. The most recent is that his foot went into the gap between the train and the platform, and that he fell onto the track area after that train got beyond the platform. Then he was hit by a second train. The one witness on the platform was yelling at the train operator to stop, but of course was not heard. He called 911, but before any help arrived, the second train pulled in.

I always "mind the gap" on the rare occasions when I take the subway.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals

How much distance is required for one of those trains to stop?

It seems unlikely to me that the operator of the second train could stop in time if he had seen the person on the tracks.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Well if they're coming in to the station presumably they are already slowing down and given an emergency situation might be able to stop sooner, but yeah who knows.

Not that this helps the situation at all, and I don't know the details, but there are side areas to duck in that seem to be made for exactly this purpose in many subway systems I've travelled. They are typically wide enough for a body or two to scurry into if you happen to fall. Also, avoid the third rail at all costs; I think I'd rather by hit by a train.
