Train nearly takes out U.S. Senator

Milford, CT (CNN) — A train passing through a station in Milford, Conn. nearly took out a politician Friday.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) was standing in the yellow warning strip, just inches from the tracks, when the train barreled by.

The lawmaker was at a press conference on railroad safety violations.

Members of the media apparently tried to warn him before it happened.
