NYC Subway Tracks Rescue Caught on Bodycam Video

A New York City subway station sign caught my attention.

Over the weekend, police officers and civilians in New York City worked together to rescue a man who fell onto subway tracks. The New York Police Department shared bodycam footage of the incident, showing the incredible teamwork that went into saving the man’s life.

As the video begins, an officer dashes towards the tracks in the Elmhurst neighborhood of Queens, New York. Without hesitation, he jumps down to assist a man who is seen kneeling down on the tracks. Officers and other train riders nearby quickly come to their aid, lifting the man up to safety on the subway platform. It’s a heartwarming display of quick action and community support.

Down on the tracks, a person springs into action and assists in lifting the man to safety, before being pulled back up to the subway platform.

In the video, the man who was rescued is being attended to by officers on the platform, while a train passes through the station.

On Saturday, the NYPD’s official Twitter account shared a post on X, previously known as Twitter, regarding an incident where “good samaritans” helped two officers, Jonathan Valle and David Canarte, rescue a man from the tracks. The police department gave credit to these individuals for their assistance in the rescue.

In midtown Manhattan last month, a woman who was 30 years old was pushed onto the tracks and into the side of a moving subway train. According to The Associated Press, a woman who has not been identified has been hospitalized and is currently in critical condition.

During a briefing last month, Michael Kemper, the chief of transit for the NYPD, reported that individuals in the station had pulled the victim from the tracks. The authorities took Sabir Jones into custody the day after the shoving incident, for which he had been accused.
