MBTA Transit Police Sgt. Brian Carey working at Back Bay Station Wednesday evening says he had a night like no other in his 21 years on the force. 

He answered a call about a man threatening suicide by touching the electrified third rail.  Sgt. Carey managed to engage the man in several minutes of conversation about family and other personal matters as efforts were made to cut power to the track.  With dozens of passengers looking on, Sgt. Carey managed to talk the man out of harm's way. 

Watch the Channel 5 story.  

Sgt. Brian Carey grew up in Roxbury and is a graduate of Boston English High School, Topsfield Municipal Police Academy, and Curry College.  The T says Sgt. Carey is a highly regarded CPR and first aid instructor who has been named Officer of the Month on numerous occasions. To the husband and father of three children from Weymouth, congratulations on- another- job well done.
