Talking Dictionary 616. She Never Knew What Didn't Hit Her


616. A young woman fell off the subway platform at 28th Street late one night. She was drunk as a skunk. Was she an alcoholic? Had she been partying? Had she been drowning her sorrows? Somehow, she ended up in the middle of the track between the rails. She just lay there, passed out. She remained that way as one, then another, and yet another N train ran over her. The motormen of the three N trains didn't realize she was a person. All they saw was a bag of trash. Fortunately, a man on the almost empty platform realized that the "trash" was actually a human being. He called 911. He said, "The signs around here say, 'If you see something, say something.' I saw something, but I still don't believe it." Medics took her to Bellevue Hospital. She was still passed out upon arriving there. Her injuries were minor. 3.9
