A train passing through a station in Milford, Conn. nearly took out U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal Friday due to his carelessly chosen podium location. At the precise moment in the frame shown, he just finishes saying "safety is paramount". The senator should heed his own tweets: "Rail operators must strive for perfection when it comes to safety—125,000 daily commuters on Metro-North’s New Haven line deserve that much." Ordinary folk would have heard the train coming and STOOD BEHIND THE YELLOW LINE!!! Thanks for setting a great example for the kids.
