Third such incident today. You missed 2 on the Red Line.

In college, I was on one of the rear cars of a State Street Subway train that was stopped halfway out of the Grand station due to a "sick passenger." Apparently, they spontaneously combusted because the next thing we knew there was smoke. That's when a guy pulled the cherry and several people (myself included) followed him off the train and up to the street. Every time I heard of a "sick passenger" I think of that time.
