True Hero

My last post was a bit of a rant. Here’s a story that will help restore your faith in humanity.

After a 20 year-old suffered a seizure in a NY subway tunnel and fell in the path of an oncoming subway train, a stranger jumped off the platform leaving his two small children to rescue the young man.

The only way to save the man (and himself) was to curl both of them between the tracks so the train would go over them. The train braked but the first two cars did go over them.

Both escaped with minor injuries.

In this day of sports “heroes”, it’s good to reminded of the true heroes that are out there.
