    Passengers flailed their arms at the driver, who stopped just in time.
    A witness said the train came to a standstill inches from the woman, who had scraped knees but was otherwise not hurt.
    There are reports that the woman had been drinking for several hours before she fell.
    Everyone in the station applauded the driver, Charice Lewis, who has been honoured by the T's Board of Directors as a hero.
    Lewis, a 27-year-old train operator from Mattapan, said she did not have time to think, she just reacted. Recounting her emotions in the seconds after the incident she said: "It was so close, I thought it was not good."
    "Afterward she came up with a big smile on her face and I'm like 'Oh my God, you really scared me' ", Lewis said. "The most exciting part for me is she crawled out from under."
