“El Ángel, de la Puerta del Ángel”

dezembro 9, 2010

El héroe del metro de Madrid
Ángel libraba y por eso había planeado pasar el día de compras con su novia. Sin embargo, se convirtió en héroe. Un policía de 30 años y sólo dos meses de servicio salvó este viernes a un hombre cuando iba a ser arrollado por un convoy en la estación de Puerta del Ángel, en la Línea 6 del Metro de Madrid.

El héroe que quiere ser anónimo
El agente había salido con su novia a hacer unas compras y estaba al final del andén, cuando el hombre, que andaba a tumbos, cayó a la vía. Algunas personas empezaron a chillar. “Salí corriendo porque estaba al final de la estación y bajé rápidamente a la vía”, ha relatado Ángel. Enseguida miró por si venía el metro del sentido contrario. Enganchó al hombre y lo sacó del recorrido del convoy. “La verdad es que le pegué un tirón y no sé muy bien cómo lo saqué. Menos mal que no era una persona muy corpulenta”, ha explicado.

Wesley Autrey

Man Is Rescued by Stranger on Subway Tracks
Mr. Autrey was waiting for the downtown local at 137th Street and Broadway in Manhattan around 12:45 p.m. He was taking his two daughters, Syshe, 4, and Shuqui, 6, home before work.
Nearby, a man collapsed, his body convulsing. Mr. Autrey and two women rushed to help, he said. The man, Cameron Hollopeter, 20, managed to get up, but then stumbled to the platform edge and fell to the tracks, between the two rails.
The headlights of the No. 1 train appeared. “I had to make a split decision,” Mr. Autrey said.
So he made one, and leapt.
Mr. Autrey lay on Mr. Hollopeter, his heart pounding, pressing him down in a space roughly a foot deep. The train’s brakes screeched, but it could not stop in time.
Five cars rolled overhead before the train stopped, the cars passing inches from his head, smudging his blue knit cap with grease. Mr. Autrey heard onlookers’ screams. “We’re O.K. down here,” he yelled, “but I’ve got two daughters up there. Let them know their father’s O.K.” He heard cries of wonder, and applause.
