    Wow, scary. Few things can induce panic quicker than the sensation of not being able to breathe. This is a very strong human instinct. When I was learning to scuba dive, my respirator became filled with water, and I will never forget the fear and panic I had when water began coming through something which was supposed to be supplying oxygen. Thank God my instructor was nearby and buddy breathed with me until she was able to clear it.

    Has anyone noticed that the name of the station in question; "LĀ“enfant Plaza Metro Station" (named after Pierre Charles L'Enfant), is french ?
    And that Pierre Charles L'Enfant first name is Charles as in Charlie Hebdo!

    Hmmmm.....
