Mystery Good Samaritan Saves Man From Train Tracks
A mystery Good Samaritan is being sought by the grateful man whose life he saved.
Thomas Holihan fell onto the tracks at an Altanta, Georgia, train station after passing out from heat stroke.
Mr Holihan told Atlanta’s 11 Alive news network he suddenly became dizzy and his legs gave out from under him, causing him to fall off the platform and onto the tracks, five feet below.
Disoriented and panic-stricken, Holihan said he struggled to climb back onto the platform with the train just minutes away.
“This Good Samaritan jumped down and after two or three attempts was able to hoist me up,” Holihan said.
After pulling him to safety, the Good Samaritan stayed just long enough to make sure Mr. Holihan was Ok, before jumping onto another train. Mr. Holihan says he has no idea of the man’s name, and never got a chance to thank him.
“God, bless you. I owe my life to you,” Holihan said. “I’d like to publicly thank you because it was an heroic effort.”
The drama was caught on a station security camera, but the rescuer’s identity is still unknown. He remembers his rescuer as a young African-American, in his early 20s, standing about 6-foot-4, weighing about 210 pounds.
