Quick-thinking MBTA inspector hailed in rescue
By Sarah Gantz, Globe Correspondent
A 53-year-old man who fell off a subway platform Wednesday morning during an apparent seizure was rescued by a fast-acting MBTA employee and two riders, authorities said.
Bobby Bainey of Boston fell into the train pit near the third rail at the North Quincy Red Line station. He was pulled to safety by Bob Moran, a Red Line inspector, and the riders at about 9 a.m., MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said in a statement.
Moran radioed the MBTA operations center to stop all trains after he heard passengers yelling that a man had fallen, then jumped into the pit to assist the two riders, Pesaturo said.
Bainey was taken to Boston Medical Center and discharged Thursday, the hospital said. No further information was available.
