Singing Grandma Thrown Off Train Gets Support of Local Officials

ABC News(MIAMI) -- The family of an elderly Florida woman is furious that she was hauled off a commuter train because she was singing spirituals and is considering legal action.

The family of Emma Anderson, 82, claims she was injured by a Miami-Dade Transit security guard who they said roughly yanked her from a train seat and escorted her off the train on Feb. 20.

Anderson of Miami-Dade, was singing spiritual hymns from her train seat when a security guard asked her to stop. The security guard told Anderson that she was being disruptive.

"I was beating my little beads with the bottle and I was singing a song, and he came up to me and said, 'Ma'am, you're making too much noise,'" Anderson told ABC News’ affiliate WPLG.

A passenger started recording Anderson and the guard's interaction on his cell phone. The video shows Anderson being forcibly removed from the train.
