Commuters frantically tried to wake up an unconscious man fast asleep on train tracks as a NY subway pulled into station Thursday.
The straphangers all then talk with one another about what had just happened before the auto returned to its normal morning commute din.
The train did stop, giving Vicente and two others the time to get down to the tracks and lift the man onto the platform and to safety.More news: Matt Damon Skewered For Comments About Sexual Misconduct
Other straphangers start yelling "Stop!" with palpable panic in their voices at the train approaching the station. She screams, "Sir, please wake up".
"I thought the train was going over him", Vicente said afterward. The woman, Liliana Vicente, pushed an emergency call button before heading onto the tracks. The passengers dragged the man off the tracks.
"Thank God the train has stopped", added Vincente.More news: Microsoft's Latest Foldable Design Patent Could Be For The Surface Phone
The train stopped. Firefighters arrived a few minutes later and took the man to a hospital. It's not clear what caused him to pass out and fall onto the tracks.
"I tried to help as much as I can", Liliana Vicente told PIX11 News.
