In New York City a construction worker traveling with his two young daughters saw a man who was having convulsions fall in front of an oncoming subway train. He threw himself on top of the man-a stranger-and held him.

Here is a link to an article about the rescue in, "The New York Times" Construction Worker Throws Himself On Subway Tracks to Rescue Stranger

I saw that on the news, he truly is Super Man as he has been nicknamed by fellow New Yorker''s. Kind of restores your faith in mankind. There are GOOD people out there. This was definitely a FEEL GOOD story, we need more of them.

It gives me chills to think of what this man did for a total stranger. Just amazing. Its wonderful to hear some postive stories in the news. What a hero. I have seen him in several interviews and he is very humble . When people call him a hero, he says no, he did what anyone would do and the soldiers in Iraq are heros. In my mind this man is a hero!!

This story even made the news in Australia. My first reaction was ''wow - what a hero''. My second thoughts were for his daughters. Can you imagine their horror watching their dad do this, not knowing if he was killed by the train? Those seconds not knowing what happened to their dad must have been horrifying.
