“Stand clear of the closing doors, please.”
One woman was clearly not heeding that message as video surveillance footage shows her getting stuck between the doors of a subway car as they close on a crowded platform. The train then departs the station, dragging the unfortunate passenger to her death.
According to CBS News:
A straphanger across the platform from the train shared cellphone video of the strange scene on Instagram Tuesday afternoon, and it instantly went viral, garnering more than 1.4 million views in less than 24 hours.
“If you thought you were having a bad day just be glad this isn’t you,” read the caption of the video. “But I’m just trying to figure out why everybody walking past like nothing is happening.”
Viewers agreed that was a good question.
“I’m trying to figure out why she’s being recorded by the person who sees this and doesn’t help her or alert an MTA worker,” an Instagram user fired back.
“This woman clearly needs help and everyone want to walk past and people laughing,” another commented. “Not funny one bit to me…”
At least five people, including an MTA transit employee, strolled past the woman as she stood trapped with her head and bag outside of the subway car, which was stalled at the station. Not one person seen on the video attempted to pry open the doors to free the woman.
Fortunately that woman was freed by an MTA transit employee and walked away unharmed.
