A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

I THINK I CAN, I THINK I CAN

A disabled woman narrowly escaped being hit by a train with the help of an off-duty police officer and her husband after the New York woman turned her car onto the Long Island Rail Road tracks that she mistook for a roadway.


The 63-year-old driver, who wasn't identified, screamed for help after her car became stuck on the rails and was facing an oncoming train.

New York police officer Randi LoCicero, 34, and her 33-year-old husband, Anthony, a volunteer fire chief, rushed to the car as the gates descended and the train's horn blared. The couple yanked open the door and pulled out the driver, who needed crutches to walk.

Moments later, the train plowed into the car, overturning and dragging
it a short distance. Neither the woman nor anyone on the train was hurt,
authorities said.

The driver, however, was a little ticked they didn't save her pocketbook.

Now, that's a real New Yorker for you.

If she was injured at all,she'll probably have gall to sue the people who were Good Samaritans and saved her, too. Now that's a New Yorker!

Given the LIRR's record of lateness,she missed her Maker by
8 minutes!
Bravo to the couple who got involved and saved her.


Have a nice weekend proofreader
and Diana.

I find it odd that she is 63 and her husband is 33. Quite an age difference, huh?

OH... I get it now. It wasn't the 63 year old woman's husband. The writer did not make it very clear. Us blondes can't follow:)
