This past Monday a dog was rescued at the Graham Avenue L train stop after having run 3.2 miles along the tracks. Luckily an L train operator spotted the dog and followed the animal at a slow speed until he could be rescued. From the NY Post:
By the time he reached the Morgan Avenue station he realized the dog had a limp. By the Graham Avenue station, at 4:18 a.m., MTA track maintenance workers managed to nab the dog, he said.
“The track worker jumped down, got the dog’s attention, grabbed the dog by its hind legs, and pulled it on the platform,” McClain said.
“Another worker got some rope and made a leash,” he said, adding the dog was friendly. “I told them thank you… and I went back into full service.”
He added, “I had so many trains backed up behind me that I couldn’t stop to talk.”
