Poor Guy, what was he thinking?

OMG, I'm still in shock.

I stepped out my front door to go and meet my 2 kids as they came home from school. I stopped for a moment to speak to the two guys that are doing renovations on our home.

Some guy was crossing the street towards my side, not 10 feet away from me. In front of a streetcar. The streetcar driver beeped at the man, and the man then dived down across the tracks and the streetcar would have run him over and cut him in half, if it weren't for the lightning quick reflexes of that poor driver.

I turned really fast, (because I didn't want to see this guy get chopped in half) and opened my cell phone and dialed 911. I turned back to look as the phone rang.... the man was all the way under the front of the streetcar, almost against the wheels.... 911 answered, and I said "I need an ambulance at (where I live), because some man just dived under the streetcar" She asked me if he was alive? "yes". She asked me if he was bleeding? I told her I didn't know. That I was afraid to look. Then I went out and stood near, and told her that they were dragging him out from under the streetcar, and he didn't look bloody. She asked me if he was consious. I told her his hand was moving as a lady was speaking to him, so yes, it seemed that he was consious.

OMG, what could possibly have gone through this poor guys head for him to think the easy way out would be to get chopped in half by a streetcar? And I feel so badly for the driver. Thankfully he was paying attention.... I split second later and it would have been too late.... cause this guy went right under the front.

I'm still shaking, even though I know that the guy will be ok. I hope they lock him up, he has serious issues that he needs to deal with before being let out in public again....
