Dramatic Rescue Performed by Heroic Construction Worker

 

"I'm still saying I'm not a hero... 'cause I believe all New Yorkers should get into that type of mode," says Wesley Autrey, a brave construction worker and Navy vet who jumped in front of an incoming train to rescue an ailing 19-year-old from death.

As the train screeched to a stop over the pair, the boy, Cameron Hollopter, who had suffered a seizure which caused his fall, asked if he had died. Autrey replied, "You are very much alive, but if you move you'll kill the both of us."

New York City is regaling the modest 50-year-old hero with money, trips, and scholarships for his kids. He is turning down money from Donald Trump for the chance to meet the millionaire. Autrey's daughters were present when he saved Hollopter.

There should be more people in the world like this. That was a truly heroic and brave thing to do, he deserves every good thing he gets from this.

"You are very much alive, but if you move you'll kill the both of us."

No panic, all is cool, sounds kinda like Teal'c (Stargate).
