“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.

She got three people out of there just in time, Port Authority officials said.
