BART police say a stabbing at the Coliseum station in Oakland Saturday may have been much worse if it wasn't for a Good Samaritan.

The victim was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in critical condition.

Mutual aid had to be called in because unruly passengers were getting in the way of the investigation.

BART opened a bus bridge for passengers from the El Cerrito station to the Richmond station.
