Blind man survives being run over by Metro train

A blind man who fell off the edge of a subway platform Thursday afternoon and into the path of an oncoming Metro train survived the accident mostly unharmed, officials said.

“It really is a miracle,” Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeman Paul Gonzales told The Times. “It's something you only see on TV.”

The man, an unidentified 47-year-old Los Angeles resident, had been using a cane to feel his way toward the edge of Metro's Wilshire/Vermont subway platform, Gonzales said.
