This is the type of accidental death that basically never happens to women.

I'm going out on a limb here, but could alcohol have been involved?

Oh, Linda, I am so glad you said that!:star:
No, she wasn't pissing on the third rail (neither was the subject above). What she was doing is texting when she fell onto it! I won't go so far as to call this exclusively a woman's accident, but it did happen to her!:biggrin-new::biggrin-new:

Woman Falls on Metro Tracks While Texting
BETHESDA, Md. - Everyone knows texting and driving are dangerous, but how about texting and Metro railing? Earlier this month, it nearly killed a woman who fell onto the tracks while texting. Another rider pulled her to safety. Jonathan Dende shared his story exclusively with FOX 5.

He was walking on the upper platform July 3 at the Medical Center Metro station when he heard a woman scream. He started to walk faster, then he heard a second scream and ran down the escalator.

Idiot. Just think of the children she and the pisser could have had together. I don't understand the "texting while walking" thing. In fact, you could take out the "while walking" part and the sentence would still be accurate.
