Just when you thought you were having a bad day... This video was uploaded to Instagram by theshaderoom. In this video taken by a passenger on another train across the platform, it shows a woman struggling to release HER HEAD from the subway doors.
First, we hope she's OK... but second... we can't help but laugh a little bit. I mean, there have been plenty of times I just 'went for it', bruising my forearms trying to catch a train, but it's never been my head! Ah!
According to Gothamist, a spokesperson said:
"While this is an unfortunate incident, the passenger was able to get out safely with assistance from our train operator," MTA spokeswoman Beth DeFalco said in a statement. "Because the doors were ajar, the train was never in danger of moving."
Let's all admit, this situation was a bit grim.
