Yes, in April 2015, a man who was looking at his phone was walking near a SEPTA platform’s yellow line and cross it. He was rescued by a bystander but suffered a broken back, a shattered knee, broken ribs, and a spleen injury from his 5 foot fall.

The injury could have been much worse

Fortunately, someone helped him off of the tracks and back onto the concrete platform before the next subway train came along.

According to 6ABC.com, a SEPTA Police Inspector stated that people who see such an event should alert the cashier immediately, who can stop incoming trains, and also alert police.

This is not the first or the last incident

Unfortunately, distracted walking is a growing problem everywhere in the world, and the cause of many personal injuries and emergency room visits.
