Julie Caniglia, who witnessed the incident, wrote about the rescue on her Facebook page.
“This afternoon I had the fright of my life. When my subway car pulled up at Broadview station I heard a faint voice call out ‘help, help me please’.
It wasn’t coming from anyone in the car and after hearing it again I stood up and looked out on the platform. Suddenly and all very quickly myself and the man beside me saw a man with a walking cane lying on the tracks. He is blind and had fallen and injured himself.
Without hesitation the man you see in this picture in the animal shirt jumped into the tracks to pull him out. Thankfully two other men showed up to help as well and this story has a happy ending.
Please pass this photo around, these men need to be recognized as Good Samaritans. If they hadn’t reacted so quickly, the outcome would have been horrific.”
The man who jumped onto the tracks first has been identified as Kyle Busquine, a 24-year-old landscaper, who had made an unexpected stop at Broadview due to a train problem.
Busquine didn’t get the names of the other two men who helped him, but is very grateful for their bravery.
“There’s no way I would’ve been able to do it by myself, especially without hurting the man any further,” Busquine said.
Paramedics took the man to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
