Woman falls from a platform - level 2, A12
A woman holding her four-year-old son walks off a subway platform and onto the tracks.
People in the Boston subway came fast to help the woman. She said she thought the train opposite was actually on her platform.
Both mother and son were taken to hospital and they should be OK. Witnesses say they were incredibly lucky because they fell very close to the electrified third rail.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
