5 LIRR employees honored for saving Brooklyn man who fell on tracks

Some Long Island Rail Road employees were honored Thursday for saving the life of a Brooklyn man who fell off the platform in East New York.
Around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, the man fell onto the tracks and had his foot wedged between the rails.
That’s when the five LIRR employees came to his rescue.
They worked together to calm the commuter down, stop incoming trains and prevent him from touching the third rail.
The commuter was eventually taken to safety with only minor injuries.
