Mr Wesley Autrey found himself in a hell of a predicament after jumping onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train to rescue a guy who was having seizures and fell off the platform. Would you have jumped to help another in danger?
A 50-year-old Navy Veteran did! Amazing job Mr. Autrey, amazing!
Mr. Autrey lay on Mr. Hollopeter, his heart pounding, pressing him down in a space roughly a foot deep. The train’s brakes screeched, but it could not stop in time.
Five cars rolled overhead before the train stopped, the cars passing inches from his head, smudging his blue knit cap with grease. Mr. Autrey heard onlookers’ screams. “We’re O.K. down here,” he yelled, “but I’ve got two daughters up there. Let them know their father’s O.K.” He heard cries of wonder, and applause.
