NEW YORK – An off-Broadway actor is credited with rescuing a man who fell onto the subway tracks as a train approached.
Chad Lindsey made the save at Penn Station in Manhattan on Monday.
The man hit his head when he fell. Lindsey leaped onto the tracks, tried to wake him and yelled for help. Then he hoisted the man onto the platform and vanished in the crowd.
Lindsey later told The New York Times that he could see the lights of the approaching train.
Lindsey appears in a show called "Kasper Hauser." The role requires him to repeatedly lift a character who cannot walk.
Lindsey, who's 33, moved to New York three years ago. He's a native of Harbor Springs, Mich.
