I AM FURIOUS about an incident
that occurred two nights ago. On Monday, 3/24/2014 just before 11:00pm, I
approached the Token Booth Clerk at the Park Place Shuttle stop in Crown Heights. I gave him a note explaining that the woman a few feet
away who had just gotten off the train with me had admitted she was
going to commit suicide and possibly jump in front of the train. I handed him a note because she did not want me to call the police, and my cell battery had died. He
began yelling at me that it wasn't his problem. I explained my cell
battery had died, and I that I didn't want to scare her off before the police could arrive to help calm her down, and possibly keep her from harming herself
or anyone else. I asked him quietly if he could call 911. I then verbally explained what I'd written in the note after he threw the note back at me. He still refused to call
the police, even though I pleaded with him to help, stressing that she had stated she was considering jumping in front of the train or killing herself when she got to her apartment. I asked for his
name or badge number and he refused to tell me. I asked him how I can
reach the manager but he refused to give me the information. I sent an email to the main MTA contact but received a form letter response. The woman on the train appeared to be a "normal" person, intelligent, articulate, educated, but she told me she'd
recently lost her job and was about to be evicted and she felt hopeless.
She refused $ and a metrocard from me. I really hope someone handles this situation but I'm guessing there will be no consequences for this employees behavior.
