Caption: "While waiting for inbound train at RI Ave, man walks across track. Metro employee sees and calls him over"
This photo was taken at the Rhode Island stop. I assume that the individual crossed the track after we were all ordered off the previous car for "mechanical problems." He clearly didn't jump the fence -- he simply crossed the track and then rested his back on the fence while apparently standing on the third rail protection.He's walking awfully close to the electrified third rail. No reports of a "unauthorized person on tracks," so hopefully this was resolved quickly.
A train arrived about minute after he walked across the tracks. This was a close call. It seems to be all sorts of crazy here--the man didn't jump the fence, he just walked out onto the tracks.
