TWU Local 234 Members Respond In Time Of Need
A rider loses consciousness and is about to fall off a train on the Market Frankford line with the train moving. The rider can’t get himself back in the car. The risk is great, but two Local 234 members Section Officer Terence Ledwell and Shane Harvey took charge of the situation by pulling the rider back onto the train---no doubt, saving his life. Their brave action is testament to the good character of many transit workers.
Hats Off to Brothers Ledwell and Harvey
