A Boston mother holding her 4-year-old son in her arms walked right off a subway platform during rush hour and fell face-first onto the tracks, landing dangerously close to the high-voltage third rail.
Two good Samaritans quickly jumped to the tracks to save her and her son before a train came through the station.
Surveillance video posted onto YouTube captured the woman as she stepped off the platform and took a shocking tumble with her small son onto the tracks Wednesday just before 6 p.m. at Cambridge's Kendall Square Station outside Boston,
Meera Thakrar, 36, from Attleboro, Mass., told an MBTA Red Line Inspector that she mistook the northbound train, which had just arrived on the platform across the tracks, for the southbound train that she was waiting for, according to the statement.
“I thought the train was right on this platform but it was on the platform," Thakrar told ABC News’ affiliate WCVB-TV. “It was real stupid of me.”
