I was on the G-Train heading north through Brooklyn when the train abruptly stopped just before the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. The conductor shut down the power of the train, and held us there for about 20 minutes. When we finally pulled into the station, a breathless woman entered my car. “A woman had a seizure and fell on the tracks!” she said, excitedly. “And a train was coming into the station! Luckily the driver noticed and slammed on the brakes.” She pulled out her phone to show just how close the train had come to hitting the woman. 

Supposedly, after the last few incidents, the MTA has been urging its conductors to be hyperaware when entering stations. Looks like a life was saved today by one conductor who took the warning to heart.
