Hi. You should never, never, never try to retrieve your cane if it falls on to the tracks, better to lose a cane than potentially your life whatever tracks we're talking about. All the best, Ibrahim. ----- Original Message ----- From: Saqib To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, February 24, 2010 6:20 PM Subject: [access-uk] Re: You Moderator and Delayed messages Yes it's unfortunate that this has happened as Barry had only had training for a new guide dog. You may remember that another VI person was killed last year because he went to retrieve his cane and was electricuted in the process. Thankfully Barry is still with us.
