In an act of true heroism, one man rescues another man in a wheelchair who fell onto the tracks at a New York City subway station.
The video of the rescue captures the nail-biting scene. You can see the man in the wheelchair is stuck on the tracks. And another man immediately jumps down to save him.
"One man jumped right into the action. He didn’t think twice about whether he was going to go on those tracks,” said Lauren Mennen, a reporter for CBS who witnessed the event.
Others joined in to help get the wheelchair and the man off the tracks. Thankfully, their efforts got the man safely on the platform just before an oncoming train passed by.
