The Face of a Hero

This is the face of a hero (even if he disagrees, and perhaps more so because he does):

Wesley Autrey, 50, of Manhattan, was waiting for a train with his two young daughters when he saw a teenager fall off the station platform onto the subway tracks in front of an oncoming train.
He jumped down, but realized he couldn't get the young man up the platform in time, so he got on top of him and pinned in the drainage trough between the rails Tuesday as a southbound No. 1 train entered the 137th Street/City College station.

The engineer spotted the two and applied the emergency brake, but two cars actually passed over the two men....evidently there was about two-inches between Autrey and sure death...

WOW, folks...the world needs more people like Wesley Autrey....
