    My husband fell between the train and the platform on Platform 5 at 30th Street Station. The platform was wet at the time and my husband was re-boarding the train to retrieve our luggage when he slipped on the wet platform and fell between the train and the platform. The gap measures 8 inches, and 4 inches in height. Can my husband get beyond Septa‘s immunity? It is hard to prove a defect other than the size of the gap, can that work without some further defect? What about the material of the tactile warning strip, which gets very slippery when wet?
