A Sikh named Gurtej Singh came to the rescue of a visually impaired man after he fell on train tracks of a subway in Boston,Mass.
The time was around 10 a.m. Friday when the man didn’t notice warning signs on the track and fell on the subway tracks of Park Street MBTA.
The man started scream for help and soon after the Sikh jumped onto the tracks to lift him out of dangers way.
“I heard a scream and when I looked up I saw someone tumbling onto the tracks,” Gurteg Singh said. “He’s blind so there’s no way he could see his footing or step up to try to pull himself.”
The Sikh demonstrated what Sikhs live for which is helping others in need.
“I think that many of us are human beings and we care about each other. If you look at it people are willing to jump in and risk their own safety to help others who fall and injure themselves,” Harry Skeffington said.
Gurtej told reporters that he didn’t think twice to help as his religion teaches him to help others.
“In the moment fight flight sort of kicked in so I jumped in to try push him up, try to give him leverage and help the people on the platform pull him up,” he said.
The man was taken to the hospital and released after evaluation.
