It was another example of brave souls helping a distressed one as a mobile phone cam captured a desperate rescue of a man who fell unconscious onto the subway tracks as a train was approaching a station Thursday morning.

The dramatic rescue was filmed by a woman who was completely shocked. The man lost consciousness and fell on the track at Brooklyn station as a train approached.  Fortunately, the train stopped as people frantically shouted for the train to come to a halt; allowing people to come down to help the man.

“I tried to help as much as I can,” Liliana Vicente told PIX11 News.

“I thought the train was going over him, I started crying,” she said. “I had never seen that.”

“I think there are still kind people here in this world,” she said.

The man who fell is reportedly in serious condition at a hospital and it’s still not clear what caused him to fall.
