“God was with me that day,” Ferguson said.
Ferguson said she heard a loud noise she couldn't explain. She saw a bunch of dust and then the train coming over the hillside.
Port Authority officials said Ferguson ran toward the train that crashed into her T stop to save her passengers.
"What I did was I jumped up. I grab my phone. I ran out of the booth, and I saw my passengers on the platform and I ran up there: 'Come, get off. Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go. Hurry, hurry, hurry, get off,'" Ferguson said.
