Tram Stop Hero

One day at the tram stop I saw an elderly man. He had a travel bag so I assumed he was a tourist. We saw the tram come down the hill. Everything up to this point was normal.

He then stepped down from the platform to the tracks and prepared to board. Everyone freaked out and luckily the tram driver saw him, slowed down and stopped a few meters before the stop.

I looked around and everyone was too shocked to do anything. I stepped down and said "Sir, you can't stand there" and helped him up to the platform.

Once the elderly man was clear of the tracks the tram pulled up and we all went on our way.

I'm not waiting for my medal but I hope your dad or grandpa made it home safely.
