Two quick-thinking cops stopped a train in its tracks to pull a man to safety after he fell during a seizure, video shows.
The daring Manhattan rescue occurred at the 14th St. station near 8th Ave. in Chelsea around 2 p.m. Sunday when two transit officers saw a man collapse onto the train bed, police said.
Body cam footage shows one officer signaling the Bronx-bound A train to stop while the second officer hops down and muscles the limp body back onto the platform edge.
“Yesterday afternoon, Officers Cerny and Lamour from @NYPDTransit District 2, observed a man have a medical episode and fall onto the tracks as a train was approaching the station,” read a tweet from the NYPD. “They quickly signaled to the train to stop, and jumped down to help the man until EMS arrived.”
The fallen man, wearing a white shirt and dark cargo shorts, had fallen after suffering a seizure, police said. Cops believe he is homeless.
