Subway Superman – Wesley Autrey


I just want to hug this man. Not only did he jump down on the track to save a stranger’s life, but he clearly doesn’t realize how rare it is for anyone to put themselves in front of a moving train. The tracks are dangerous enough without a moving train — think pesticides and the lethal third rail — but this man jumped off of the platform and rolled a convulsing man into the subway gutter.

What possessed an everyday passenger to do this? As a construction worker whose dangerous job often confines him to small spaces, he says it just had to be done. Not to mention, Wesley didn’t want his little girls to have to see the horror a helpless man get stuck down by an oncoming train. Talk about a Super Dad!
