Miami-Dade woman kicked off Metrorail for singing

MIAMI (AP) — The mayor of Miami-Dade County has apologized to an 82-year-old woman who was kicked off a Metrorail train for singing.

The Miami Herald reports Emma Anderson was singing religious hymns and making noise on the train Feb. 20 when she ignored a warning from a security guard to quiet down.

A cell phone video taken by a fellow passenger shows the guard physically removing Anderson from the train at a station. Anderson fell as she struggled with the guard for her rolling suitcase.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez issued an apology to Anderson this week.

Miami-Dade Transit also issued a statement saying county rules prohibit anyone from “singing, dancing or playing a musical instrument” unless they have a commercial permit. Transit spokeswoman Karla Damian says Anderson’s singing was causing a disturbance.
