Good Samaritans Save Visually Impaired Man From Atlanta MARTA Train Tracks

A group of morning MARTA train commuters have a split second to decide what they will do when they see a visually impaired man fall onto train tracks.

This is a MARTA train commute a group of Good Samaritans will never forget.

And then there is the man they saved.

The man is visually impaired and fell onto the tracks at Atlanta’s Five Points MARTA station Thursday morning.

Fellow commuter Daniel Summers had a split second to answer the question, “What would you do if….?”

He told WSBTV, “”I heard people yelling. As I got closer, I realized they were yelling, ‘Help!'” Summers said. “There was a split second when I looked around and said, ‘There’s no police here. It’s just me. Do I need to be the one who jumps in?’ I don’t remember looking for a train, but I remember looking at the rails and just hopped right in.”

Talk about quick super hero movement. The next train was due to arrive within a minute of getting everyone up off the track area.

The man suffered a broken ankle and was taken to Atlanta’s Grady hospital for surgery.
