    Cool story, 10/16/13.

    '“I could hear the train coming,” said transit worker Danny Hay, who arrived on the platform just after the man in his 20s collapsed. “I could feel the wind being pushed by the train, and I could see the light from the train on the rails coming closer.”

    Hay sprinted about 300 feet to the end of the platform. Using his flashlight, he signaled the operator of the approaching train to hit the brakes.

    “She saw the light and was able to stop the train at the mouth of the tunnel, just before it entered the station,” Hay said — preventing the three from being hit.

    Reinforces why it is good to always carry a light, even when you think or feel it may not be needed. Good on the guy and great ending!
