What would you do if you saw someone, especially an elderly woman, caught in an escalator? Would you stop to help? Well, in Boston, some where put to the test and the results were heartbreaking. The Boston Globe has an article on the tragedy (to view, click here). Below is an account of what happened, given by Larry Fitzpatrick, Sr., one of the few people to aid the woman. How anyone could see this happening and not stop to help, is beyond my understanding. I don’t care if you will be late to your destination, this was someone’s life at risk.
I wouldn’t be right for a long time if I were in this man’s position. God bless him for trying to do the right thing.
