Though it’s all over the news and the blogosphere already, I just had to give Wesley Autrey some blog love of my own for his heroic actions. Autrey, a 59-year-old construction worker, jumped in front of a subway train to save Cameron Hollopeter, a 20 year old film student suffering from a seizure, shoving him into a two foot deep trough and lying on top of him while 102 feet of train passed overhead.
This story almost brings me to tears. I wish only the best for someone so willing to risk his life to safe the life of a complete stranger.
