Talk about irony.

Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal learned you should probably practice what you preach when he was nearly hit by a train during a commuter safety press conference Sunday.

The senator and his easel narrowly dodged an oncoming train as he and Milford Mayor Ben Blake spoke on a train platform.

Blake was even saying "safety, as you know, is paramount" when the train sped by, according to a video of the close call posted to YouTube.

The press conference had been in response to the poor safety record of the MTA Metro-North line, according to Gawker.
