In New York City everyday people are the heroes, like passengers and a subway conductor on an uptown train platform, who saved the life of a nine-year-old child and her suicidal mother.
Warren Cox, an MTA conductor that was on the scene said, he originally did not see a problem.
But, “After observing for a couple of seconds I said, ‘you know, is there a problem?’ And she said, ‘No, there’s no problem,'” Cox said.
However, he soon realized last Friday afternoon that was not the case and the woman was attempting suicide, WABC News reported.
So, the employee, stood between the mother and the train tracks for safety.
Adding that, himself and passengers stood “almost in a semi-circle around the woman and the child, encouraging the child, ‘nothing’s going to happen to you, we are all right here.'”
Holding back emotion, Cox explained,”It’s rough, it’s rough, you see things like this happening to other people.”
As we all know, suicide is a hard issue. If you or someone you know is dealing with it, check organizations like Suicide Prevention Lifeline out.
