3 bystanders save man who falls on subway tracks

The subway was only one minute away when the trio hopped on the tracks and hoisted the man to safety

NEW YORK — Three selfless subway heroes jumped onto the tracks of a Manhattan station when an incapacitated stranger fell yesterday - and miraculously hoisted the passed-out 20-something back to the platform before the next No. 1 train rushed in.

The Columbus Circle station was packed with bar-closing straphangers at about 2:40 a.m. when a man in his 20s, who appeared to be drunk, stumbled from the platform onto the tracks, and fell unconscious, hitting his head on the rail.
