Here’s a guest post from James
I was heading south on Purple Line from Fullerton about 3:30 pm on Monday. I was in the last car of this run as the train pulled into Armitage station.
Two small children, a boy about 5 and a girl about 7, come running on to the train. The announcement came: “Doors closing.”
Then I heard from the platform frantic screaming – “Stop, stop!”
The two parents were pulling wheeled luggage, he with an extra backpack and she with a American Girl doll. I could see they were huffing to get on the train. So I jumped up from my seat near the door to block the doors from closing.
They made it onto the train, rejoining their two children. Once united, the father sighs, and exclaims, “This could have been a CTA ‘home alone.’ “
