Bystanders push subway train to free trapped woman


A group of commuters have banded together to help free a woman whose leg became trapped between a subway train and platform in Boston.

The 45-year-old woman told police she slipped as she was getting off the train at the Massachusetts Avenue Station around 5:30 p.m. Friday, and her leg became stuck in the gap.

Video released by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Monday shows a group of passengers rushing to her aid and pushing the train away from the platform until she was free.

The Boston Globe reports ( the woman begged bystanders not to call an ambulance because of the cost, despite her suffering a severe laceration on her leg.

She has been hospitalized at Boston Medical Center for treatment.
