MBTA Workers Credited With Saving Man’s Life In Red Line Station

BOSTON (CBS) — Two MBTA workers are being praised for saving a man’s life.

They were on duty at the Wollaston Station when a 24-year-old with a heart condition fell down the stairs.

Inspector Gonzales and Karen Kane rushed to his aid.

The man, Kevin Bossart is still recovering but doctors say he wouldn’t be alive if it weren’t for the workers.

On Tuesday, Bossart’s parents thanked the MBTA workers.

“We’re so thankful for Inspector Gonzales and Karen Kane’s quick actions that they took to help our son, Kevin. Without their initial efforts, we wouldn’t be able to continue with the care that Kevin is now receiving and we’re looking forward to his continued recovery,” said Kevin’s mother Trish Bossart.
