A blind man from Colorado is on a quest to find a quick-thinking, good samaritan who recently pulled him to safety just seconds before he would have been potentially killed by an oncoming train.
Mike Wyatt is grateful to be alive — so grateful, in fact, that he has returned to a train station in Aurora, Colorado, to ask passerby if they know the man who saved his life last Thursday.
The original rescue unfolded when Wyatt accidentally got too close to the tracks on Nov. 9. That’s when the mysterious good samaritan took action and pulled Wyatt away just five seconds before a train approached, KUSA-TV reported.
Watch the harrowing ordeal — and Wyatt’s reaction — below:
Now, Wyatt — who knows nothing about the man who saved his life — is on a quest to find this hero, heading to the Peoria train station in an effort to thank him in person.
“You live and you die. It’s what you do in between, and this young man did a great thing for me and that’s what I want to say to him ‘thank you,'” Wyatt said. “It really feels like someone is watching over me. That’s good. That’s really good.”
He added, “I will be always remembering this man and his kindness.”
