Anyway, now with the link that shows him on the Letterman show, we can see for sure that he did know what he was doing, he did make a calculated decision, and it wasn`t just a suicidal impulse after all.
Also, how do you know he DIDN`T know he could fit under trains? You don`t know anything about his knowledge and experience of trains. Hey, I even knew that a person could lie down on the tracks and fit underneath a train, and I barely know anything about trains.
As for you and your `views` on him having died in front of his two kids and all that rot... He didn`t, and even if he had he`d have died a hero. We need `more` people like him who are willing to help strangers, and less people like you who dredge up bad shiznet that didn`t even take place.
He did NOT just say that. CHEESE!
God know how he knew how to fit under it... i bet he just DIDNT know he could, he just didnt think.
I think just because you have kids, and just because they need you, you should not jump on a rail.
Go ahead, tell me im selfish and that if it was my son having a seizure i`ll be glad a man jumped. But if my son had a seizure, and killed the father of 2 adorables daughters, i`ll hate mysefl for it too.
And "everyday heros"... you know when you start that you not gonna get reconised as such. They tell you right when you start studying for it that no one call the police cause they happy and to tell everything is fine.
Most the time, you get reconised as a hero when you die in fonction.
lets say we are all everyday hero, give blood, buy fair trade product and recycle. It save life too.
Whatever. Not many people would have done the same thing in his situation. I don`t think I would`ve. Good on him.
hey, not to break the mood, but wouldnt it be funny if the guy later died in the hospital? XD yeah i know im horrible
The world could use more people like him.
Well spoken sir. Although I think the rewards in this case were rather excessive. I mean, tv shows, scholarships for his children when they may end up being terrible in school. I don`t know...
I`m not downing on what he did, it`s awesome and he deserves to be rewarded, though I will down on the media who doesn`t cover enough stories like this.. especially stories about people who do this as a profession. (No, not jumping into subway tracks to save people, I`m talking about cops, firemen and other `daily heroes`.) Just because they do it `every day` or are `ready to` doesn`t mean they shouldn`t also be published and get rewards for the outstanding things they do...
Props to the selfless men and women of the world!
ahh well... turns out no one died this time *sigh*
