the third rail at that station is between the updown and downtown tracks. She would have had to crawl quite a bit to get to it. Shes very lucky the train didn't drag them enough for her to slip through the tracks and fall into the oncoming traffic below.

Moving someone who’s been in any kind of traumatic event is risky In that if there were a spinal injury the risk for paralysis exists by moving them. I was an EMT and treated many trauma victims. The first thing you do is stabilize someone before moving them.

Andrew Yang is correct, we need to de-stigmatize mental health problems and have more options to help those who are going through this. I used to be a staunch Republican, very much against social care etc but Andrew Yang has helped me re-evaluate my stance on this. A lot of our country's problems (gun violence, suicides, opioid epidemic) can be alleviated with proper mental health care.

His Freedom Dividend is just a step in the right direction but there's a long way to go.

This little girl just lost her father in the most horrendous way. We need to empathize with that and not villify him. He deserves pity not hate.
I'm not happy that the father died, but I cant bring myself to say anything nice after he tried to take his innocent kid out with him. Coward.

Is there space underneath moving train for something small to be able to survive under as the train passes.

Yes, on the elevated tracks there is space for the train to pass over you if yo lay flat on your back but if the passing of the train creates an updraft allowing a piece of clothing to get caught on anything under there then SOL for the person as it will drag them across all the ballast. On the underground tracks this may vary from station and chances are that gap will be filled with garbage and or water, in short no one would want to lay in that filth underground.
