Someone rightly said, “one who is protected by God, can’t be killed by anyone.” The good Samaritan spotted the man and jumped on the tracks without thinking about his life. He picked up the disabled man and then helped him back on the platform. Other people standing at the platform were also seen helping both men seconds before the train arrived.

The video was shared on Twitter with a caption, “This afternoon in Union Square a man in a wheelchair somehow ended up on the subway tracks. Luckily, a Good Samaritan jumped down and rescued the man about 10s before the train came into the station. Huge shoutout to whoever the guy is who jumped down to help! #subwaycreatures”
