Hero Rescues Man From Subway Tracks Seconds Before Train Comes.

Saving The Man

Treading very carefully, Jonathon grabbed the young man and held him in his arms. Jonathon was strong enough to lift the man, but he had to move very slowly because the man was quite heavy. Unfortunately, time was something that Jonathon didn’t have very much of.

The Train

Jonathon looked to the left and then to the right. If a train came out of nowhere, Jonathon wouldn’t have had enough time to get off the tracks, which wouldn’t be good for either one of the men. But luckily, there was no train in sight.

Lifted To Safety

With the help of a few other people, Jonathon was able to lift the man safely up onto the train platform. The man slumped over for a few minutes. "He was responding with nods when I was asking him questions about, you know, if he was okay and whatnot," Jonathon said. A person standing by was able to capture the entire life-saving interaction on his cell phone.

One More Minute

It only took a minute after Jonathon and the man climbed to safety until a train quickly whizzed by the spot where the man had been lying unconscious on the tracks. If Jonathon had taken just one more minute to jump down to the man, he wouldn’t have been so lucky. For the first time in his entire life, Jonathon was more than grateful that the train hadn’t arrived when it was supposed to.

Was He Sick?

As soon as the police and EMTs arrived at the scene, they tried to piece together what had happened. It was clear that Jonathon was a hero, but they needed to try and figure out why the man had fallen down onto the tracks, to begin with. Was the man intoxicated or sick?
