Sen. Coleman Saves CQ Reporter

Yesterday, Roll Call reported the following nugget:

    Capitol Hill subway riders were in for surprise Tuesday, when the doors on the Senate train wouldn’t open upon arriving at the Capitol platform.

    In what resembled a mini Senate version of “Rescue 911″ sans host William Shatner’s narration, fellow rider Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) sprung into action, instructing fellow subway riders how to open the two sets of car doors. “He took control of the situation,” says Bob Stevenson, the one-time spokesman to former Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) who was stuck in the middle subway car with Coleman.

    But, the knight in shining armor — or rather, suit — wasn’t finished. Coleman helped pry open the other two car doors helping stranded riders get out of the car and on their merry way.

One of those riders? FishbowlDC hears it was CQ’s Victoria McGrane.
