Occupy Protester Jumps in Front of BART and Survives (video)
More from Mission Local:
A man named Michael jumped onto the 24th Street BART tracks just as a Daly City-bound train was approaching. Wearing a shirt that said Viva la Revolucion and yelling “You have the power,” he said he was occupying the tracks because he was sick of sleeping on the streets for six years.
Witnesses on the platform waved their arms frantically at the driver, and the train came to a screeching halt within a foot of hitting the man.
Michael was on the tracks for no more than two minutes when police arrived on the scene.

A commenter on MissionMission said that Michael turned around to the oncoming train and said, “You almost hit me.”
