Couple Rescues Disabled Driver From Onrushing LIRR Train

This past Friday, a couple showed displayed amazing heroics when they saved a disabled driver from an onrushing Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train. The unidentified 63 year old driver mistook the tracks as a road. When she realized that she was on the tracks, she yelled for help saying she could not get out.

34 year old NYPD officer Randi LoCicero & her 33 year old chief of the volunteer fire department in Franklin Square, husband Anthony LoCicero ran to the car as the crossing gates closed down. When they reached the cat, they flung the doors open & got the driver out of the car just in the nick of time. Just seconds after, the train plowed into the car dragging it a short distance.

Ms. LoCicero had this to say about the incident; “She was a little mad we didn’t get her pocketbook, but you know, that’s life.” Long Island Rail Road spokeswoman Susan McGowan had this to say about the incident; “We are very grateful for the quick thinking and fast actions of these two heroes.”

Leave it to a woman to worry about her pocketbook when she almost died………
