Wow! This story is a total trip! A woman on a train in California thwarted an attempted mugging by “faking a medical problem” to attract the attention of other passengers. The woman says that someone dropped a note in her lap while she was riding the train. She didn’t see the person drop the note. The note stated that two guns were pointed at the woman’s head, and that she needed to hand over her wallet and her phone. The woman then decided to fake a “seizure” or fake “passing out” to cause a ruckus. She thought this would cause the would be robber to move on. AND it worked!!

HOW did the woman come up with this idea, you ask? By watching “Law & Order”….yup! A television show helped this woman escape a possibly tragic event. Isn’t that crazy? Kudos to this woman for being brilliant! Smart woman! You can read more about this story here.
