A train conductor is taking the spotlight after he told his fellow passengers on a New York City subway train to train their bike to avoid a deadly ride that could have killed them.
According to ABC News, the video, which shows the incident, shows the conductor trying to prevent the train from colliding with a train carrying more than 700 passengers on the line at a busy station.
The train, which was bound for New York’s LaGuardia Airport, was traveling at a slow speed and the conductor told passengers to slow down so they would not get too close to the train.
The conductor also said, “Don’t stop your bike” as the passengers began to slow their bikes down to make way for the train, ABC News reported.
When the train began to speed up, the conductor tried to warn passengers to stop their bikes, but they kept going, according to ABC.
The train driver and the passenger who had the bike then got on top of the conductor, the station said.
The passengers on board were rushed to the hospital and were listed in critical condition.
They were all from Queens, according the station.
One of the passengers, a 25-year-old woman, told ABC News she was afraid of the train because of a fear of riding a bike on a subway.
“I feel safer riding on the subway, but it’s a little scary because it’s so slow,” she said.
“It’s like a train coming down the tracks, and you don’t want to get hit by a train,” another passenger, who also asked to remain anonymous, told the station.
“I feel like it’s my duty to warn other people that I ride a bike,” she added.
