BOSTON — Boston transit workers are gaining praise from a mother for rescuing her 3-year-old daughter’s stuffed animal from the train tracks.

According to Casey Carey-Brown’s blog, “Life with Roozle,” MBTA workers acted quickly to save her daughter’s stuffed bunny from being run over at the Green Street stop in Jamaica Plain on Wednesday.

Carey-Brown writes that the stuffed animal “jumped” from her daughter’s stroller as they exited the train, and fell onto the tracks.

She says a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority worker called the oncoming train, halting it, so he could safely rescue the toy.

In her blog, the mother thanks the workers who aided in the rescue effort, saying “you really didn’t have to do what you did today, but you have made a little 3-year-old incredibly happy.”
