Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal held a press conference on Friday about commuter rail safety on a train station platform outside New Haven, and very nearly became one of the statistics he was there to discuss. As he’s being introduced, a train whizzes past, startling the senator and nearly knocking over his visual aid. You've got to check out the video.
Let that be a lesson to you, boys and girls. If you’re planning a press conference on a train platform, look both ways or you could end up as the hood ornament on the Acela Express.
