Woman gets handbag stuck in moving MBTA train (full video)

This shows the dangers of purses at times as this Boston Woman nearly loses her life trying to hold on to her purse caught in the doors as the train starts moving as she's caught...

This happened here in Chicago as child prodigy and now world renowned concert violinist at the time 19 year old Rachel Barton was severely injured in a train accident in the suburb of Winnetka IL about 8 miles west of my home here in Buffalo Grove, where she taught violin lessons.
As she was exiting a Metra commuter train with her violin over her shoulder, the doors closed on the strap to her case, pinning her left shoulder to the train. The doors, which were controlled remotely and had no safety sensors, failed to open, and she was dragged 366 feet by the train before being pulled underneath and run over, severing one leg and severely mangling the other

Barton Pine was saved by the prompt application of tourniquets by several passengers who disembarked from the train after pulling its emergency brake handle. (source)
In addition the violin she was carrying at the time was valued at over  $500,000.

This woman here was gratefully not seriously injured as she could have easily lost her life.

"(myfoxboston) - She got a bag stuck trying to get on the MBTA train and what happened next is pretty scary.

A 34 year-old Quincy woman was trying to board a Red Line train at South Station when the doors closed on her pocketbook. The train began to move away with her bag wedged in the doors.

The woman ran alongside the moving train shouting for help. At the last minute, she let go prior to going off the end of the platform but she collided with a wall.

The MBTA says they launched a thorough investigation of the incident."


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
