At last night's 1st Precinct Community Council meeting, Captain Brendan Timoney (pictured)
spoke about the dangers of texting and walking.
Indeed TD2 Officer Jimmy Rudolph spoke about a woman who was run over in the subway( miraculously not killed) who was texing and walking, and fell on to the subway tracks and run over by a train.
From the NY Post story:
Dye had been texting in the Broadway-Lafayette Station in Soho at about 10 a.m. Thursday when she slipped on the wet platform and fell onto the tracks — just as a southbound B train was rolling into the station.
Workers cut power to the track and freed Dye, who was under the train but not hit by its wheels.
The 25-year-old South Carolina native, who now lives in Bed-Stuy, had been scheduled to perform Friday night at a Valentine’s Day show at The Stand in Gramercy Park.
