A homeless woman covered in bed bugs forced the quarantine and cleanup of a train on Chicago’s CTA Red Line.
A Youtuber uploaded the video of a homeless woman sleeping on a CTA Red Line train on Tuesday. The video shows dozens of bed bugs crawling all over clothes in a bag near the sleeping woman.
Michael Moore, who shot the video, told the train conductor who ordered a cleaning crew to go over the El car. Passengers stood on the platform while the train was disinfected. But Moore said the homeless woman was among those waiting with everyone else to reenter the train on another car.
Moore said he told the conductor who didn’t seem to care.
