Jan. 5 (UPI) -- A Boston woman captured video of residents banding together to free am MBTA bus that became stuck in the deep snow on their street.
Karen Lyons Clauson posted a video to Facebook showing neighbors working to push the stranded bus through the snow on their East Boston street.
Clauson said the residents, who had been outside shoveling their sidewalks when the bus became stuck Thursday, used their shovels to create a path for the tires.
She said it took about 45 minutes to free the bus, which subsequently became stuck again on the other side of the road. Clauson said freeing the bus the second time went much faster.
"When it matters, East Boston residents step up and exhibit empathy and compassion," Clauson said, "Which is why I'm proud to be an Eastie resident!"
