Casey and Michelle Carey-Brown’s 3-year-old daughter Riley said her beloved stuffed animal bunny, Nummy, was nervous about riding the T.

While on their journey Wednesday, the four all rode one stop on the Orange Line from Stony Brook to Green Street. While getting off the train, Nummy’s worst fears were realized when the bunny fell out of Riley’s stroller and onto the tracks between the platform and train.

Riley immediately screamed for her friend.

“My friend! Nummy! She fell on the tracks and now a train is going to run her over! She will be squished by the train! On the tracks! I NEED MY FRIEND!!!” said Riley

Casey rushed to find an MBTA worker for help while her wife Michelle waited with an anxious Riley.

The worker then radioed ahead to the conductor of the next train.

Listen to the call:

“I guess the little kid’s stuffed animal that’s very dear to them fell into the pit there on the southbound,” said the worker.

“OK… do you want me to stop and get that in the pit?” said the conductor. “Wait a minute, I think I see it right here.”

After stopping the train in the middle of rush hour, the conductor got out, picked up the bunny, and tossed it onto the platform.

Casey then ran back to her wife and daughter with Nummy in hand.

Riley shouted “thank you!” to nearby MBTA workers for saving her bunny.
