Good Samaritans rescue pregnant woman from subway tracks


A dynamic duo rescued a pregnant woman who tumbled onto subway tracks Friday morning in Midtown, witnesses said.

The woman was standing on the center platform of the A/C/E line at 34th Street-Penn Station when she fainted and fell down to the track bed onto the downtown side about 8 a.m., officials said.

An MTA worker at the scene credited a pair of good Samaritans who leaped into action to save the woman.

“Two guys saved her. She fainted and fell down to the tracks and she reigned consciousness, while she was down there. A man jumped down to where she was, he lifted her up and handed her off to another man who pulled her up.”

“She was bleeding from the head,” the worker added

The woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor, non-life threatening injuries, an FDNY spokesman said. Train service was not interrupted, officials said.
