After a woman’s leg became trapped by a subway train in Boston, the bone exposed through her thigh, she reportedly pleaded with bystanders: Don’t call an ambulance.

“Do you know how much an ambulance costs?” she wept, according to The Boston Globe.

Commuters rushed to rescue the woman after she became stuck in a gap between a train and the subway platform. The incident occured around 5:30 pm on Friday at the Massachusetts Avenue station, according to a police report. The gap was just 5 inches wide. (King 5)
