Wesley Autrey was standing on a Manhattan subway platform with his two daughters when he noticed a disturbance. A young man looked like he was have a medical platform. Then the man fell off the platform onto the tracks below.
Autrey had little time to think. He had to save the guy before a train came. He jumped down to the tracks. He grabbed the guy, threw him down and the rolled into a gap between the tracks. A train came to a screeching halt as it passed over them. Several cars ran them over.
Autrey and the man he rescued, Cameron Hollopeter, were fine. Hollopeter was sent to the hospital for observation and Autrey went on his merry way. He visited Hollopeter and his grateful family in the hospital later that day.
