Video: Train nearly takes out senator on platform during safety conference

You know those yellow dotted lines on the platform? They’re there for a good reason. In this hilarious video, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal held a press conference on a platform at the Milford Metro-North station to discuss its safety record and a train nearly takes him out.

Fittingly the train speeds by and knocks everything over just as Blumenthal said, “Safety, as you know, is paramount.”
