Toronto police Chief Bill Blair says an officer has been disciplined for posing as a stranded passenger on a waterlogged commuter train during major flooding last week.
Blair told radio station Newstalk 1010 the officer was “shameful” to pretend he was one of the 1,400 riders on the GO train when it became trapped by flood waters during the evening rush hour.
CBC said the officer was Const. Nickolas Dorazio. The network said he was working to help rescue the passengers, but told their TV crew he was stuck on the stranded train and even draped an orange towel around his shoulders for effect.
