NYPD officers, Good Samaritan race to rescue man who fell onto subway tracks in Brooklyn: video

The NYPD has released bodycam video of two officers and a Good Samaritan working together to rescue a man who fell off a train platform and onto the tracks at a Brooklyn station on Monday.

Officers positioned in the transit system were alerted just after 2:30 p.m. that a man fell onto the F/G train tracks near the Smith and 9th Street station and could not pull himself up from the roadbed, police said.

Officer-worn body camera footage shows the Good Samaritan meeting officers in the station and leading them to the man in distress on the tracks.

Working together, they are seen each grabbing hold of the man and lifting him up onto the platform to safety before a train could arrive.
