Chad, 33, was in Manhattan waiting for his subway in March when another commuter fell from the platform, hitting his head on a rail and knocking himself unconscious.  With no regard for his own safety, Chad leapt down into the tracks and lifted the man out of harm’s way. Only when the man was safe did Chad jump back up to the platform himself.  He had only 10 seconds to spare before the train pulled in.
