A Brooklyn man is being called a hero after saving a baby who fell onto the subway tracks Tuesday.
It happened around 12:45 p.m. at the Van Siclen Avenue station on the J and Z line.
Delroy Simmonds, 30, says he was on his way to a job interview when a strong gust of wind blew a stroller onto the elevated tracks with a baby boy strapped inside.
Simmonds sprung into action and jumped down to the tracks.
"The strap on was still onto the baby so as I picked the stroller up, the baby still onto the stroller so I just could easily pick both of them up one-shot deal and then put them on the platform," recalled Simmonds.
The child suffered cuts to his head.
Simmonds - who has two daughters - said he has another job interview scheduled for Wednesday.
