BK woman seeks 3 Good Samaritans in subway rescue

BROOKLYN - A Crown Heights woman is looking for three Good Samaritans who saved her life by pulling her off of train tracks where she ended up after being pushed earlier this month.

Cheryllyn Boyce-Carter says she was waiting for the No. 3 train at the Utica Avenue station sometime after 7:30 p.m. on Labor Day. The platform was crowded with people because of the West Indian Day Parade, Boyce-Carter recalls, and suddenly everyone started running, yelling that someone had a gun.

The hysteric crowd pushed Boyce-Carter onto the tracks, and she says she couldn't get up on her own. That is when two men and a teenage girl lended her a hand and pulled her back onto the platform.

Boyce-Carter ran out of the station and went to the hospital to be treated for the injuries she suffered during the fall.

Meanwhile, police say there were no shootings reported at the Utica Avenue station at around 7:30 p.m. on Labor Day.
