Good Samaritans Rescue Blind Man Who Fell On Metro Tracks

A visually impaired man can be seen on surveillance video inching closer and closer to the tracks at a Washington D.C.-area Metrorail station before falling onto the tracks.

The scary situation unfolded around 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Medical Center Metro Station in Bethesda, Maryland, WJLA-TV reported.

Right away, Brendan Cawley, who was on his way to work, ran to help the man and attempted to pull him back onto the platform.

Other people rushed to help and pulled the man to safety within 20 seconds of the arrival of an oncoming train, according to the report.
