The Save Before the Caps Game

Kudos to Red Line Good Samaritans at Woodley Park Station at about 6:40 p.m. tonight. You noticed the woman in the black suit who was slumped in Car 1294, her head back, eyes closed and mouth open.

Thanks to the young woman who sat down next to her who first wondered aloud whether she was breathing. Thanks to the tall guy in suit who called the operator on the intercom, and the woman who checked and determined she had a faint pulse.

After a few minutes, after all passengers got off the train, someone in a dark suit -- presumably a trained medical person was able to get the woman to be respond. She could be seen talking and moving on her own. Hope she makes it home safely.

And finally, shout-out to Metro. At the height of rush hour, the platform announcements were clear, and a train on the opposite track arrived within minutes to take many of the passengers toward Shady Grove.

Who said Metro riders don't care about their fellow passengers?
