Blind Man Falls On Metro Tracks, Saved By Onlookers

Earlier this week, a video was released that showed a blind man falling onto the tracks of the Medical Center metro station, which is located on the red line in Bethesda, Maryland.

In the video, the man is seen stumbling onto the rails and bystanders quickly reacting, ultimately saving him moments before the train pulled into the station (if you look towards the back of the video, the lights of the train can be seen coming in through the tunnel). NBC Washington reported that he was taken to a hospital and while he was injured, nothing was life threatening and he is expected to recover.

This is not the first time something like this has happened however. Back in May 2018, a visually-impaired woman fell in between two cars at the Van Ness station, also along the red line.
