In the name of the desperation of mass education. Thank God accidents don’t happen.
“U know, yolo,” Jarisa Fuentes, one of the twerkers, wrote in an e-mail to Daily Intelligencer. “I was only having fun.”
“One word, dumb,” said MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz.
Fuentes says the twerkage took place at around 1 a.m. on Sunday morning at a D train station in the Bronx. She and her friends had been waiting for a train for nearly an hour, and started talking about a video they had seen of people jumping across the tracks from one platform to the other. “But because I’m short I knew I wasn’t gonna make it,” Fuentes said.
We asked Fuentes if she had felt any hesitation about, you know, climbing down into the tracks to film a twerking video. “I wasn’t scared,” she says. “I was just cautious.”
Despite the seemingly harmless time the pair was down on the tracks, anything could have transpired to disastrous results. One YouTube user pointed out a harsh reality with a bit of malicious intent stating, “I was just SO hoping the train was early .. and going very fast.”
