In one video posted on YouTube by user Sephiroth Egret , the trademark good humor of the city’s Bravest is on full display.
In it, the derailed G Train’s door slid open and in walked one of the firefighters..
“Hey everybody!” he said.
“Hey!” the beleaguered but calm passengers replied.
“How’s everybody doing? Anybody hurt?”
No, they replied,
“Everybody scared s--tless?”
