Been living in NYC way too long. Saw a guy on the tracks this AM, with the B train speeding ahead. Tried to pull him out and he ducked under the tracks. He’s all good, he was just enjoying a morning cig under the train. pic.twitter.com/SV20vtj6go

It looked to commuters in the Grand Street Station this morning as though a man wandering the tracks was about to get hit by an oncoming train. But he crouched down just in time, and walked away unscathed.
This video was taken at around 10 a.m. by commuter Shon Mogharabi, who posted in to Twitter. Mogharabi told the Post, “Right before the train hit him, he ducked under the platform. Everyone turned away, thinking he was dead. It was terrible.” As soon as the man waved his hand from underneath the train, people in the station breathed a sigh of relief.
The man, who appeared to be drunk, was smoking a cigarette and ignoring pleas from bystanders to get off the tracks before the next B Train rolled into the station. Mogharabi tried to pull him up, but the guy just turned his back, according to the Post.
The man finally crawled up onto the platform, and sauntered past firefighters. Police took him to Bellevue Hospital.
