Give That Man a Trip To Disney World! NYC Subway Savior Showered With Gifts

5 Jan

Yahoo News has the AP Story: NYC subway savior showered with gifts. For those who haven’t yet read elsewhere of this man’s life-saving actions:

On Tuesday, [Wesley] Autrey saw Cameron Hollopeter, a 19-year-old film student, suffering a seizure while waiting for a train. After stumbling down the platform, Hollopeter, of Littleton, Mass., fell onto the tracks with a train on its way into the station.

Autrey, traveling with his two young daughters, said something needed to be done and he thought: “I’m the only one to do it.”

He jumped down to the tracks, a few feet below platform level, and rolled with the young man into a drainage trough between the rails as the southbound No. 1 train came into the 137th Street/City College station.

Some train cars passed over Autrey and Hollopeter with only a couple of inches to spare, but neither man suffered any harm from the incident. Hollopeter, hospitalized for his medical condition, was in stable condition Thursday.

There’s really nothing I can add here. Except to say that yes indeed, he’s been given a trip to Disney World. My prayers are with both Autrey and Hollopeter today.
