Carol Inman Glover’s life was celebrated January 19, as over 600 people came together at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, 525 A Street NE, the Washington Post reported. Ms. Glover was a resident of Alexandria. Her brother, Melvin Inman, owns Market Poultry at Eastern Market, according to the Hill Rag online.
Ms. Inman was trapped along with more than 200 other passengers in a southbound yellow line car last Monday, January 12, 2015. After she and her fellow passengers were trapped for over 45 minutes about 800 feet from the entrance to the tunnel at L’Enfant Plaza metro station, Ms. Glover died of respiratory failure due to the large amounts of smoke she inhaled. A couple of her fellow passengers tried to administer CPR to Ms. Glover for about 20 minutes, but she lost consciousness. She was the only fatality, but 84 other passengers were hospitalized due to the noxious smoke. The District of Columbia recently released a timeline of the known events in this sad accident, which you can read here. (.pdf file)
Our sincerest condolences to Ms. Inman and her family.
