BOSTON (September 26, 2013)--Three people who were waiting for a subway in Boston rescued a man who fell off a station platform and landed on the tracks.
A video shows the man walking straight off the Orange Line platform at North Station at around 9 p.m. Wednesday and then falling to the track.
The three people jumped down and lift him to safety, one from the opposite platform.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo said trains in the area were stopped so the man was never in danger of being struck.
A report from the responding officer described the man, a 33-year-old Malden resident, as being covered in dirt and confused afterward.
He said man said he had two drinks to celebrate passing the medical boards and was waiting for a train home, but doesn't remember anything else.
