It's as hazardous a job as there is in the subway. Danger is always lurking

on the tracks.

struck by a G train in Brooklyn.

 

A co-worker also was pinned against the tunnel wall. He suffered nine

broken ribs, but survived.

"Every time we go down to those tracks, our lives are in danger." said John Samuelsen, president of TWU Local 100. "And as you saw this morning, tragedies occur like this far too often."

I know exactly where this tragedy happened.  It's a dangerous curve where the TO can't see until he or she comes around it.  It is very sad!

While this was a terrible tragedy, please correct your topic title, and job title of Louis Gray. He was not a Track Worker, he was a Conductor, who was doing Construction Flagging. While we have our own Flaggers in Track, Louis Gray was R.T.O. not M.O.W. Thank You.
