Boston train driver hailed ‘hero’ after emergency stop saves woman on tracks
The Angry man has been on another hiatus, I took a break from some of the annoying bickering that you read online about the image of black men and women, but the me problem is that some black intellectuals don't take the time to get off the high horse, and appreciate our everyday heroes in the community, such as Charice Lewis. Whom quick reaction to commuters waves save another woman's life. When I see these type of stories about sisters, and brothers...it balances out the stereotypes portrayed in movies like Precious! Lewis the driver of a Boston subway train that stopped just before hitting a woman who had fallen onto the tracks has been hailed as a hero.
Charice Lewis got a radio call from fellow subway employee Jacqueline Osorio when she saw the woman, who had been drinking, tumble over.
Ms Lewis immediately tugged the emergency brake which stopped in time.
"As I'm approaching, the lady pops her head up, and I'm like 'Oh my God, someone's in the pit'. So I just threw it in emergency, exactly what I'm supposed to do. And it stopped just in time not to hurt her," said Ms Lewis.
