A video recently surfaced online showing a woman with her head trapped in between subway doors in NYC while people casually strolled by without bothering to call for assistance or talk to her.
New York Post reports that the unidentified woman had her head caught in the doors of train No. 4 on Tuesday, at around 12:45 p.m. near Woodlawn station in the Bronx. The woman apparently tried to rush for the exit after the train stopped, but didn’t make it in time. Subsequently, her head and her bag jutted out of the closed doors.
MTA spokeswoman Beth DeFalco indicated that the victim eventually received help. She was removed from the doors and taken to the hospital for medical treatment. She’s expected to be OK.
“While this is an unfortunate incident, the passenger was able to get out safely with assistance from our train operator. Because the doors were ajar, the train was never in danger of moving.”
Although she made it safely out of the doors, the footage clearly shows several people walk by the victim without offering to assist her, even if it meant just talking to her until help arrived. Even the person filming the incident didn’t put down the camera and offer assistance.
