WATCH: Train Narrowly Misses Senator During Rail Safety Speech
A Democratic senator was nearly hit by a Metro-North train while standing on the yellow line during a speech on commuter rail safety.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) is urging safety accountability for Metro-North after a report found nearly 140 violations over the last 10 years.
At a press conference at the Milford, Conn., station, Blumenthal stood behind Milford Mayor Ben Blake on the station platform.
Blake said, “Safety, as you know, is paramount,” just as a train whizzed by alongside them, nearly hitting Blumenthal and almost taking down an easel.
