We’ve heard of people walking into open manholes and tripping into fountains because they were too busy texting to pay attention to where they were going. However, phones are not the only distraction we need to be careful of in this world.
A 10-year-old boy from Loreto, Milan, got a refresher class in ‘watching where you’re putting your feet 101’ when he accidentally stepped off a subway platform. Absorbed in his PSP game, the boy took one step too far past the yellow line and fell onto the tracks. Luckily for him, policeman Alessandro Micalizzi acted fast and hopped down onto the tracks to return him to safety before he suffered anything worse than a couple of bumps and bruises.
We’re assuming he won’t be suing the rail company or transit authority for not having a guardrail in place, but in these situations, you never know.
