This past Friday, a young boy fell into the gap at the Metro-North’s Peeksill station. Here is more from the Associated Press:
A Metro-North Railroad spokesman says a boy has fallen into a gap between a train and platform in Westchester County, but the child was quickly pulled out unhurt.
Railroad spokesman Dan Brucker says the boy’s parent or parents lifted him out after he stepped into the gap shortly after noon Friday in Peekskill. With no one injured, the family then left on the New York City-bound train.
The boy’s name and age were not available.
It was nice to know that the boy was not injured. Hopefully one day we will never have to hear about any gap accidents.
