TTC driver rescues 4 people in car stuck on slippery tracks before GO train strikes – Toronto
A TTC employee is being praised for his heroic efforts in rescuing four people stuck on train tracks in a car moments before it was hit.
Toronto Police said on Thursday, just before 6 p.m., a driver was in the Finch Avenue and Kennedy Road area when he turned left onto the railway tracks.
The vehicle then got stuck on the tracks, police said.
A TTC bus operator saw the car was stuck on the railway tracks and helped get all of occupants out. The bus driver then kept them “safe and warm on his bus,” police said.
