BOSTON (AP) - Three people waiting for a subway train in Boston rescued a man who tumbled off a station platform and onto the tracks.
A transit agency spokesman says the man fell onto the Orange Line tracks at North Station at about 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Video shows the man walking straight onto the tracks, where he remains motionless. Three people then jump down and lift him to safety, including one man who came from the opposite platform.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says a dispatcher was notified and trains in the area were stopped so the man was never in danger of being struck.
Pesaturo says the man was alert and had no visible injuries when pulled back onto the platform. He was taken to a hospital.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin lawmaker is introducing a bill, no pun intended, that would legalize duck races.
Well, not real ducks but the plastic ones with numbers on the bottom. Nonprofit organizations commonly race the little plastic ducks as fundraisers. Participants usually buy a raffle ticket corresponding with a duck's number.
The first to float across the finish line wins.
State Rep. Andre Jacque circulated a proposal Thursday to legalize the races. He says the village of Mishicot was warned by the Wisconsin Department of Justice that its annual rubber duck race amounts to illegal gambling.
Jacque's bill creates an exemption for duck races, similar to laws in Minnesota and Michigan.
Rubber duck races in Wisconsin include the "Ducktona 500" in Sheboygan Falls and the "Lucky Ducky Derby" in Menomonee Falls.
BROCTON, N.Y. (AP) - The teammates of a high school football player in upstate New York who died after being injured in a game have voted to end their season early.
Damon Janes was injured during the third quarter of Westfield-Brocton's Sept. 13 against Portville. He was able to get on his feet but lost consciousness on the sidelines. He died three days later and an exact cause of death has not been released.
Concern about hard hits among has brought renewed attention to concussion management and a national initiative to teach the "Heads Up" tackling technique. A recent study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine found an average of 12 high school and college players die annually.
Damon's was at least the fifth high school football death this season. But his was the only team to cancel the season because of it.
Teammate Joey Villafrank says, "Now I realize that there's more than just playing the game."
