There are near misses and then there's this guy in Oakland, California who got saved just before a subway train creamed him. Wow!
BART's humble hero saves a passenger from fast approaching train. On Sunday, November 3, 2019, transportation supervisor, John O'Connor was working crowd control at the Coliseum Station after the Raiders game when an intoxicated passengers miss-stepped and fell into the trackway. John sprang into action and pulled him to safety.
Tonight we are thankful for John.
He's a former Train Operator who was promoted to Transportation Supervisor. He was working the Coliseum Station for the Raiders game and saw someone on the platform who needed help. He saved a life tonight.
Thank you John.
Show him some love. https://t.co/BIb5NMdZFj
