Westport commuter Janet Freedman shot off a letter soon afterward to Giulietti, Gov. Dan Malloy and Sen. Richard Blumenthal telling them, “Thought you would want to know that Metro-North was outrageously unsafe once again.”

Freedman, an executive with New York-based Hanes Brands Inc., said she has been commuting on Metro-North from Westport for many years. Here is how she described what happened:

“I took the 7:07 train GCT to Westport tonight. At Stamford, we were told to switch trains—no explanation. New train stopped in South Norwalk, doors opened, passengers got off the train.
