Sorry JaLacaob, a misunderstanding. I was referring to guest, not you. I agree with you.

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.

teiso: I 'don't' know he didn't know. I was implying possible cleverness of him with that comment because -I- sure as hell didn't think two people could fit under a train. Again, I don't think that would be part of the 'jump' thought process, but the point stands.

That was hilarious. HAHa he got a 1 year pass to ride the subway. It should be a lifetime pass.

Nice to be reminded, outside of the Xmas period, that there are still a few genuinely good people out there.

I saw this on the news the day it happened. People in the streets were calling him a hero. People are still calling him a hero. It's really pretty cool. I still think it's crazy.

I agree with Guest that he probably should've thought of his daughters... but I doubt that in that situation, he wouldn't have time to think. I think he must've acted out of reflex. And if he DID think about it, he wouldn't have time to save him.

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.

Um...so let's say they end up being terrible in school--what does that have to do with giving them a scholarship?

^not sure if the person who threw it is still alive, otherwise they probably wouldn't have thrown the baby in the first place. Someone probably threw the baby because the person knew they were going to die (could've been cornered by flames) and thought there might have been a chance someone could catch it (if the fire department was outside and a crowd of people were standing around watching or something).

Who would throw their baby from a building? (second page) They had better of been grateful to the person who caught it...

Guest5386: Pessimistic, much? Cops -do- get thank you letters, and they do get recognized on small levels, but they don't get $10,000 checks and crap for saving a life by taking a bullet. I'm saying they aught to. We still do the 'cop thing' because it makes -us- feel good to know we helped people but why should an act of courage like that (where he may not really have thought about it) get rewarded like that and not the people who willingly sacrifice themselves and put themselves in danger regularly? Why? Because they choose to do it? What difference does that make?

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.

Even though it was an amazing thing to do I think the rewards were a bit excessive.

Thats amazing... amazingly stupid in a way also... he could have been KILLED in front of his 2 daughters who are 4 and 6, and traumatise them for life.

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.
