An unidentified 33-year-old medical student drunkenly walked off the edge of a Boston subway platform and fell on the tracks Wednesday night.
A surveillance video (below) in Boston’s North Station captured the moment when two bystanders jumped down on the tracks to rescue the medical student.
A third man ran from the other side of the station and jumped over the electrified third rail to lend assistance, noted the Boston Herald.
According to the police report, "[The medical student] stated he had two drinks to celebrate passing the medical boards and was waiting for the train home, but does not remember anything else."
Ironically, this month subway officials launched a new safety campaign telling passengers to stay behind a new “yellow tactile warning strip," proving once again that drunk people don't obey safety campaigns.
