This is Mankind

While we do usually post up videos here on SN7, I’d like to think that the enveloping theme consists of media that matters. With this in mind, I decided to take a different approach to today’s post.

I came across this story today while on a treadmill in New Jersey, watching a news broadcast about a story in Australia. During today’s morning commute on the other side of the world in Perth, a commuter got his foot stuck in the gap that lies between the train and the platform. Naturally, people started to gather and watch as workers tried to pull his foot out, with no luck.


What amazed me was their response. Not one or two, but what looks like almost 100 people jumped to action and were able to push a 70,000 subway car to free the man’s foot. In the middle of everybody’s busy morning commute, there was still time to come together as a community for a single purpose.


Humans sure are a remarkable bunch.
