One woman in Boston is very grateful for the kindness of strangers today.
In surveillance footage released by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority from Monday, we see an unnamed 31-year old get up at the Davis Square train station and simply wander off the platform.
The incident took place at 8:41 a.m.
The woman - who only suffered an arm injury - told EMTs that she fell asleep on the nearby bench and sleepwalked away, fortunately only falling a couple feet and not coming into contact with the third rail.
She subsequently called for help and multiple commuters rushed to her aid, pulling their fellow resident to safety before any train barreled down the tracks.
"You definitely saw the strength of the city," onlooker Abha Gallwale told WHDH-TV of the incident and those who helped.
"Without thinking of their own safety they jumped down to make sure the woman was okay and lifted her out without even a hesitation, which was amazing to see."
