An incredibly dramatic video recorded at a New York City subway station yesterday morning showing a man rescuing a 5-year-old girl from beneath a train has gone viral.
The girl can be seen crawling out from under the train before the man grabs her and hoists her onto the side platform. A woman off-camera can be heard shouting, “Little by little, my love, little by little!” in between sobs.
Authorities say the girl’s 45-year-old father jumped in front of an oncoming train moments earlier with the girl in his arms.
Emergency responders pronounced the father dead at the scene. The girl was taken to Jacobi Medical Center with minor injuries and was reunited with her mother, according to the city fire department.
