NEW YORK — Three good Samaritans in New York City jumped onto subway tracks after a stranger fell, hoisting the man to safety before a train rolled into the station.

The New York Post  reports it happened Sunday at Columbus Circle in Manhattan. A man in his 20s hit his head and stumbled onto the tracks.

The newspaper says the next train was supposed to arrive in two minutes when Garrett O'Hanlon jumped onto the tracks to help the injured man.

Seeing his struggle, Dennis Codrington jumped in, too. So did Matt Foley. The three worked quickly as the train approached.

Riders waiting on the platform helped lift the man. The three men got up just in time.

First responders rushed the unconscious man to a hospital. His condition was unclear.
