A 21-year old woman named Aracelis Ayuso lost her life yesterday while waiting to catch the Number 4 train to Brooklyn around 3:30 pm. The incident occurred on Saturday. Ayuso was waiting for the train and was engrossed in her iPad while standing on the platform. Unfortunately, she fumbled with her iPad, and while trying to catch it, she lost her step and fell on the platform.
While it certainly wasn't her fault - a human reflex action happens without a second thought, and Ayuso was only trying to catch her iPad - but it isn't necessary that we use electronics and stay connected every single moment of our lives. Because, as in this case, it cost Ayuso her very life.
