In today's most terrifying or most over-reactionary news, a video has surfaced that appears to show a New York City subway conductor (operator? driver? captain?) asleep at the controls (wheel? buttons? computer?).
The video shows the man controlling the Number 1 Local train slumped down with his head lolling lifelessly as if he were asleep. He wakes up as the train pulls into its stationâ€”to the weird dismay of the person filming him ("Oh man, he woke up now, cuz we're at the stop."). Shouldn't someone be screaming in terror?
The MTA has issued a statement and will address the issue "appropriately," shorthand for "dude got canned two weeks ago." Reached for a statement, my dad told me that he was "just resting his eyes."
