Good Samaritans rescue man from train tracks

A man in a motorized wheelchair was rescued in Washington, DC after he fell onto the train tracks at U Street station.  Two men jumped onto the tracks and helped lift the man to the platform. Others at the station rushed to the scene to lend a hand as well.  Although he sustained a few cuts on his face, emergency workers on the scene reported that the individual was breathing and conscious. All things considered he appeared okay, but was transported to an area hospital for further examination. Though Metro personnel applaud the Good Samaritans for immediately leaping to the man’s aid, they do caution that it’s best to wait until someone can deactivate the charged 3rd rail.  Coming into contact with the electrified strip can result in severe injury and even death.  The identities of those who assisted the man in the wheelchair despite such dangers being present are not known.
