Hah. That’s nothing. I was waiting at the Kendall/MIT red stop line one day after work, and heard shouting. Seems this guy had been on the wrong side of the station for the direction of train he wanted to take. At this stop there are separate sides to get to the different directions. So instead of going outside and walking to the other side, he decided the best way to get to the side he wanted to be at was to JUMP DOWN ONTO THE TRACKS, cross over, and then try to jump back up on our side.
Now for those who don’t know - the tracks are way below us. When he was standing on our side, the height of the wall he would have to get at was above his head (normal height, heavier guy). And of course, he couldn’t jump up on first try - he tried to put his arms up and pull himself up, but fell backwards, full out on the tracks.
All of us are freaking out. There’s one guy yelling for someone to get someone who works for the MBTA or the police.
The guy finally manages to get up on our side by having a bunch of guys grabbing his arms and pulling (showing some lovely plumber’s crack on the way). The train comes shortly after, but we had to wait for the doors to open. They finally open, because the police had come to take the guy.
