Apparently inspired by a viral story about a similar rescue in Australia, a group of them banded together to push the train away from the platform to help get her leg unstuck, then cared for her until help arrived.
A MA woman is drawing attention for begging people not to call an ambulance for fear of high hospital costs after she was injured in a subway accident.
'Do you know how much an ambulance costs?' she wept, while explaining it would cost a few thousand dollars.
A woman riding the subway in Boston got her leg stuck between the platform and a train Friday, prompting a pricey ambulance ride and setting off a healthcare debate.
"It's $3000 ($A4060). I can't afford that". It was twisted and bloody.
Passenger Marleny Polanco witnessed the incident and told CNN that the woman appeared to be in serious pain and bone was exposed from her leg. Skin came off. She's in agony and weeping. "'It's $3,000, ' she wailed". While it's unclear what her medical bills will total, the New York Times editorial board sees a clear problem.
The piece explained that the USA spent "vastly more on health care than other industrialised countries" - almost 17 per cent of America's gross domestic product in 2014 - and that the cost was often passed on to patients who struggled to afford it. The woman managed to take out her leg and, to everyone's surprise, she started crying - not because she was in pain but because she didn't want them to call an ambulance for her injury.
The incident has since gone viral, for reasons that tell two different stories about America in 2018.
Boston EMS chief Jim Hooley said ambulance callouts generally costed up to $1,900 for people with pressing needs, like resuscitation. A Kaiser Health News report found a year ago that with private companies taking over ambulance services in many towns and cities, patients often face thousands of dollars in bills even for a brief ride to a hospital.
"The trade-offs that everyday people are being asked to make, the calculations they are being forced to undertake in the scariest of situations, suggest that far too many of America's politicians have placed too little value on the well-being of its citizens", theTimes continued.
