Bart Happenings

Last Wednesday I was riding Bart on my way to work. My routine in the morning is I listen to music and get caught up on online reading. I was sitting in my seat minding my own business when I see a lady jump up and yell I DO I DO. The lady started running down the crowded aisle pushing people to the side as she went.  I was like what in the world is going on? Why is she saying I DO I DO? Then I hear people talking about someone needing CPR. The intercom in my train car wasn't working. People were running to other cars to call the train operator to get him to call for a medic. 

People were saying the lady had stopped breathing, others were worried she was going into shock and people were jumping up & down trying to see what was going on at the end of the train. We arrived at the next station and medics were waiting. Luckily the lady was awake and alert as we pulled away from the station. I am not sure exactly what happened, but it was super scary. It was nice to see everyone acting quickly and helping the lady out. 

Why is there always one in the group that causes a ruckus though? There was one lady screaming TAKE OFF YOUR COATS, GET A BLANKET, DON'T LET HER GO INTO SHOCK, SOMEONE DO SOMETHING. Now the woman screaming was at the other end of the train, had no idea what action was being taken or what was even going on. I was tempted to call medics to have her taken off the train for losing her mind!

By the time I got to work I didn't need coffee because I was WIDE awake!  Always an adventure on Bart!
