Long Island Rail Road Crew’s ‘Act of Heroism’ Saves Bulldog

Eight-year-old bulldog “Sampson” was preserved by the expeditious reaction of two Long Island Rail Road members last Tuesday. Mike Francow was sitting down for lunch at an East Hampton park when his bulldog took off on an impromptu adventure. The Suffolk County building contractor told the New York Post that Sampson, his eight-year-old bulldog, is “the type of canine that always returns,” customarily to his van. But after probing the area, a self-described “distraught” Francow had to return to work.

Meanwhile, Sampson’s adventure had brought him onto nearby train tracks — and into the path of an oncoming engine. “As a canine doter, it’s like my worst fear to hit a canine,” LIRR engineer Christian Beck verbally expressed. “Luckily it was a section of track where the max speed you can go is only like 40 miles an hour. It was enough time to react and slow the train.”

“Beck,” alongside assistant conductor Vinny Fragale, hopped down onto the tracks to get Sampson clear. And albeit he was missing a ticket, they invited him along for the remnant of their jaunt from Jamaica to Montauk. “I could tell, like, ‘Oh he’s been out for a while, he just wants some shade,’” Beck recalled.  “I was contemplating my own canine, like, you ken, if he was left out. Or he had gotten out somewhere else. I’d be plenarily trepidacious.”

After coaxing Sampson aboard, the two crewmembers gave him some dihydrogen monoxide to avail him cool down on the remnant of their peregrination. “He dotes to ride, so I’m sure when the train pulled up and they opened the door he was homogeneous to, ‘Sure, this is great,’” Francow verbalized. He was reunited with Sampson just 20 minutes after the train’s advent at the Montauk station, after conductor Mike Stabile posted their newfound friend to local lost pet Facebook groups.

They still managed to arrive at their scheduled stop on time, just afore 1:00 p.m. LIRR President Phil Eng exalted Beck and Fragale’s expeditious cerebrating and immensely colossal hearts in a verbal expression to PEOPLE, promising a formal thank-you:

This act of heroism is another example of how our workforce is truly part of the community where they live and serve. Our conductors and engineers and other frontline workers are truly compassionate people who take pride in helping their Long Island neighbors.

As a dog owner myself I am glad that our crew went above and beyond to rescue Sampson and connect him with his owner. I look forward to providing a commendation for all of these employees and working with our labor leaders to acknowledge the true spirit of the workforce.

“Those are some genuinely special people to do that and take care of him,” Francow echoed, and promised to put a congruous tag on Sampson’s collar to avert the near-pernicious escapade from transpiring again.
