Brave Man Jumped On The Tube Tracks To Save Another Man’s Life

Proving that Londoners can be pretty darn brave and have huge hearts, an unsung hero saved a man on the Underground earlier this week. On Tuesday, approaching rush hour, a 47 year-old passenger felt unwell and fell into the tracks. Luckily, there was one guy quick to react and (rather dangerously) jumped onto the tracks after him. Although the British Transport Police warn that this is an extremely risky and unrecommended move, they have praised the bystander for his bravery.

The ill passenger was swiftly taken to hospital and the police have since been told that he will make a full recovery. Police are now appealing to find the bystander, so they can thank him for his bravery.
