VIRAL: Video shows man passed out on Brooklyn subway tracks before rescue


NEW YORK (AP) - New York City subway riders have rescued a man who passed out on snowy tracks as a train approached.

Dramatic cellphone video on NBC New York shows the man lying face-down over the train tracks Thursday in Flatbush, Brooklyn, as a woman's voice pleads: "Sir, please wake up!"

People on the platform yelled at the train operator to stop as others hoisted the man to safety. The woman, Liliana Vicente (vih-SEHN'-tay), pushed an emergency call button before heading onto the tracks.

The train stopped. Firefighters arrived a few minutes later and took the man to a hospital.

Vicente says she hopes someone would do the same for her under those circumstances.
