U.S. Senator nearly hit by train during train safety press conference
Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal narrowly missed getting hit by a train during a press conference on Friday.
Blumenthal was standing on the platform of a train station in Milford, Conn., while the town’s mayor, Ben Blake, spoke about commuter safety.
“We have about 5,000 customers taking the trains each and every day. Safety, as you know, is paramount,” Blake said. Seconds later, a train whizzed by and nearly brushed Blumenthal and an easel.
Blumenthal, as shown in the video, was clearly standing over the yellow safety line.
