Good Samaritan Stops Blind Man From Unknowingly Walking in Front of Oncoming Train
Video from the Regional Transportation District in Colorado shows a man walking with a cane toward the pedestrian crossing at the Peoria Station moments before a train passed through.
A good Samaritan in Colorado stepped in to stop a blind man from unknowingly walking onto railroad tracks, moments before a train pulled into the station, surveillance footage shows.
Video from the Regional Transportation District shows a man walking with a cane toward the pedestrian crossing at the Peoria Station of the R line in Aurora at about 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 9.
As the man, who authorities said is blind, was about to cross the tracks, another straphanger runs up from behind and pulls him back to safety, the RTD security footage shows.
A train went through the station just seconds later.
The two men appear to speak before safely crossing the tracks.
The good Samaritan has not been identified.
The man whose life was saved has been identified by KUSA News as Mike Wyatt, who has since returned to the train station in hopes of reuniting with the commuter who saved him.
“It really feels like someone is watching over me,” Wyatt told the television station.
Several days had passed since his rescue, and he decided to make it a mission to track down his guardian angel.
“I’m looking for the young man who saved my life,” read a sign Wyatt brought to the station.
“You live and you die,” Wyatt said. “It’s what you do in between, and this young man did a great thing for me and that’s what I want to say to him — 'thank you.'"
