A local father was taking his son to preschool. As they were getting off the computer train, the three year old pushed a button for the handicapped exit - and the doors closed before the father could get out. A young woman on the platform tried to open the doors, but the train slid away.
And it was nearly 10 minutes before the poor dad could get back to his son.
You can read the original story here.
And you can read it from the “guardian angel’s perspective” here.
If the man had come back to an empty platform, that could have been the beginning of a great mystery novel. But I’m glad real life worked out the way it did.
