Caltrain posted the heart-stopping video, captured by surveillance video at the Redwood City stop, to emphasize the importance of taking safety precautions. Apparently this lucky soul also ruined everyone else’s commuting schedules that day, since every near miss — and this was definitely a near miss — has to be investigated.
