Texas Officer Helps Save Woman in Washington D.C.

With most press about the Harris County Metropolitan Police Department here is a positive story. We'll see if the local press gets a hold of it. Metro Officer Eliot Swainson was working in Washington D.C. at the inauguration of President Obama when he heard a woman was stuck on the tracks as a train was coming in. Unable to pry her off the track Officer Eliot helped push the woman into a crawl space as the train passed over. The 68-year old woman was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Kudos to a Texas officer doing a great job in Washington D.C.
