After a woman's leg became trapped by a subway train in Boston, the bone exposed through her thigh, she reportedly pleaded with bystanders: Don't call an ambulance.

"Do you know how much an ambulance costs?" she wept, according to The Boston Globe.

Commuters rushed to rescue the woman after she became stuck in a gap between a train and the subway platform. The incident occured around 5:30 pm on Friday at the Massachusetts Avenue station, according to a police report. The gap was just 5 inches wide.

Surveillance video from the Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority Transit Police Department showed passengers rocking the train back and forth to free her.

Suffering a deep laceration, the unidentified 45-year-old woman's leg was left "twisted and bloody," according to Globe reporter Maria Cramer, who witnessed the accident.

The story gained national attention after Cramer's tweet, and the New York Times' editorial board followed with an op-ed titled "This Tweet Captures the State of Health Care in America Today."

Police said emergency medical personnel bandaged the wound, which would require surgery, and took her took the hospital.


people would rather limp to the hospital with bandaged up broken legs like street children in rio because they can't afford an ambulance :lol:

also highlighted a spelling error.

Tbf, it costs 2500 dollars to call an ambulance. That is how you get to the savings of old people.

People save up all the money in their 401k and have a good insurance plan and they end up with a huge medical and everything is gone in a few years so those people will die quickly. Burden to the society. No need.
