NYC officials honor officers who saved man stuck on subway tracks
Mayor Eric Adams, Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority CEO Janno Lieber honored two officers who rescued a homeless man from an oncoming train in Manhattan.
Police say the man accidentally fell on the tracks on Thanksgiving Day. The NYPD rescued the man just moments before a train rolled into the station.
Mayor Adams added the rescue was made possible after the city and state partnered up to increase patrols on the subways.
The mayor issued a proclamation in recognition of both officers, one of whom is from Haiti and the other from Bangladesh.
