Good Samaritan saves toddler from subway tracks

A good Samaritan is being hailed a hero after saving a toddler from subway tracks in Brooklyn.

Delroy Simmons jumped into action after a strong gust of wind apparently blew the child in a stroller off the platform at the J station on Van Siclen Avenue.

The toddler was taken to Brookdale Hospital with a gash on his head, but is expected to be OK.
