if you watch her right hand, she comes very close to the 600 volt rail.

Lex - great minds think alike at times. I thought the same thing...touch the 3rd rail and you are a well-done piece of meat. Hoping I never experience what our inebriated subject experienced; I wondered what I would have done if I fell on the tracks. It would seem the best course of action would be to lie as prone as one can and [hope] the train passes over you. I can't imagine a train part that hangs down below rail level...'could be wrong though.

I saw the video in Marengo on "Good Morning America" . Kudos to the employees of the MBTA But I hope the Drunk gets Busted for public inebriation and causing a dangerous situation  in a public transportion facility . Other people could have been hurt or killed due to her actions and the entire area could have been shut down during the investigation of the incidence . A Whole lot of money could have been lost because of this . John II
