Incident #1: The other night:

Pleasant Plains SIR train station - Amboy Road @ Penton

Man stuck arm infront of incoming train, first responders followed blood trail up to train tracks from street

Arm was severed, FDNY EMT and NYPD walked into bar next door and asked for bag of ice. EMT put severed arm into bag of ice, drove to hospital with AC on and windows down. SIUH North attempted to re-attach limb. https://nypost.com/2019/02/14/hero-emt-recalls-race-against-time-to-save-mans-severed-arm/

I hope they did not pour the ice directly on to the severed limb. The limb should be in a separate wrapping and placed onto the ice. The media doesn't usually get the story straight. Good job by all concerned.

I responded to a few incidents on the SIRT line w/R*2 before R*5 was organized....most of them seemed to be on the grade level tracks which may be more conducive to trespassers as opposed to the other Boro's elevated or underground lines.

agreed. Although some parts of the line are below grade/street level (not tunnels) and above street level.

That particular station is raised above street level pictured here:



And other parts of the line are below street like this one on Huguenot Ave:

Good bagel store right there on Amboy Road by the station.
