Three men are being hailed as heroes after they were caught on camera pulling an unconscious man from the train tracks, minutes before a train came barreling through.
Cellphone video acquired by Gothamist and WABC shows the three men rescued the victim, a man in his 50s, moments after he fell to the tracks.
“Without hesitation, three men jumped on the subway tracks and pulled him out,” Sumeja Tulic, a student at CUNY Journalism School told Gothamist. “The man was unconscious and bleeding.”
One of the men picked up the victim’s belongings and put them on the platform while the other two lifted him from the tracks onto the platform.
Other men on the platform helped pull the unconscious man up, then helped the brave good Samaritans back onto the platform.
