A great story of someone doing the right thing.
An elderly man, Theodore Larson, of the Bronx fell onto the subway tracks in NYC. An actor, Chad Lindsey, jumped on the tracked and pulled the unconscious Larson off the tracks and back on the platform before the train came 15 seconds later. The best part of the story was how Chad Lindsey then tries to stay anonymous and leaves on the next train.
Subway heroes, as they are inevitably tagged even before the grease from the tracks is rubbed off, come along every now and then — indeed, as the story of Chad Lindsey suggests, perhaps more often than we know.
Minutes after rescuing a man who had fallen onto the subway tracks at the Penn Station stop on Monday, Mr. Lindsey managed to melt back into the anonymity of the city, escaping the notice of the police, paramedics and subway workers.
