Senator Nearly Hit by Train During a Train Safety Event

United States Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) was nearly struck by a speeding train during a press conference on Friday — at a conference about commuter safety, no less.

The conference, which was held on a Metro-North train platform in Milford, Conn., was meant to draw attention to an overhaul in Metro-North safety. But it ended up being a dangerous situation itself.  With his back to the tracks, Blumenthal said, "Safety, as you know, is paramount..." just as an Amtrak train sped through the station.
