Riders on the L-line streetcar witnessed horrific drama Tuesday night, as Muni riders saved a fellow rider from serious injuries. The drama began when the hand of an unknown rider became trapped in a Muni door. As the train accelerated, the man was dragged against the asphalt. Panicked passengers tried to alert the Muni driver. Fortunately, as the man was inches away from the wall of a tunnel entrance, one rider stopped the train by triggering an emergency release. The rider refused medical treatment, and his whereabouts are unknown.
