NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New York City subway worker was being hailed as a hero Monday for preventing a train from hitting a man who’d had a seizure and two other people who were trying to help him.
Subway operator Danny Hay was on his way to work Sunday morning when he saw a young man on the tracks at the Delancey Street station in Manhattan.
“I noticed a man was laying in between the tracks, convulsing. He was having a seizure,” Hay told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond.
As Diamond reported, Hay got on his radio and called for help. When no one heard him, he ran up to the train booth and told an attendant to cut the power.
