Watch Your Arm on Muni!

Rider Fannie saw a scary incident this morning at Church station:
Around 8:45 a.m. I got on a train that was quite full, after waiting for three full trains to pass by at peak rush hour. Then, this chick got her arm stuck in the door. Like in the sliding track…her left arm and elbow. I watched her scream with hysteria. Originally, she’d been very busy trying to cram on to the very full train, and getting angry. I would have helped her, but there were more than three people already trying to do so.
Somehow, they got her arm out. She had a pretty big bruise on the bone of her elbow…She was distraught (and I would be too).
They made us get off. (As in, empty out the entire two car train)
And some of us filled out information cards (as witnesses).
And then waited for two more trains before getting on.
Lesson learned: Muni vehicles are not worth (almost) losing a limb over.
Yikes. I’ll remember this the next time I try to jam onto a train…
