METRO officer saves woman at DC Inaugural
With a lot of negative press on the Metro Police Department I found a positive article. Metro Police Officer (yes our Harris County Metropolitan Police Department) Eliot Swainson was in Washington D.C. working with their transit police for the inauguration of President Obama. Officer Swainson heard a woman was stuck on the track as a train approached. Unable to pry her from the track, Officer Swainson pushed the woman into a crawl space as the train passed over. Afterward, the 68-year old woman was rescued and transported to the hospital with minor injuries. So, kudos to Houston Metro Officer Swainson, a Texas officer who did an outstanding job in Washington D.C.
