The officers leaped into action following the 61-year-old guy dropped through the platform during the give Avenue place in East brand new York.
Detective Henry Greco and Officer Jason Macaluso, both assigned to patrol town housing, quickly pulled the person to safety.
“Sir, have you been okay?” one of many officers asked the person, in human body camera video. “I’m happy we saw you.”Chief of Housing Jeffrey Maddrey praised the officers because of their fast reasoning.
As MTA seat and CEO Janno Lieber honored them, Greco and Macaluso had been amazed into the MTA boardroom by the existence of the person they spared.
The MTA awarded the officers with “Hero for the Subway” commendations.
