An off-duty Con Edison supervisor spoke to NY1 exclusively Friday after he rescued a man from the subway tracks early Friday morning.
Thomas Rowan said he was at the Lincoln Center 1 train stop around 5:40 a.m. when he noticed people on the platform running and yelling.
He looked over and saw a young man lying on the tracks, bleeding from his head.
Rowan said the subway clock time indicated a train would arrive in just four minutes.
Meanwhile, as the young man got up and began stumbling towards the third rail, Rowan said he yelled to get his attention.
"He turned around. He came towards me. I grabbed him and I pulled him up off the tracks and pulled him onto the platform, and shortly after, the train came," Rowan said. "So he was lucky, 'cause I don't think that the train got a signal to stop."
The New York City Police Department and EMS both responded to the scene.
Police said the man was heavily intoxicated and was brought to New York Hospital with non-critical injuries.
The MTA said they have no record of any incident.
