Sometimes you read a story that seems too good to be true. And all too often, you find out that they are. The New York Times carries such a story today, but it seems as if it may just turn out to be one case in which reality matches what you'd like to believe.
To summarize: A young man apparently fell into a subway tunnel in New York as a train approached. Another man, who was taking his two daughters home before reporting for work at a construction site, jumped in and covered the fallen man while the train roared overhead. As the story says, "Five cars rolled overhead before the train stopped, the cars passing inches from his head, smudging his blue knit cap with grease."
Read the whole piece. It will make you feel better about humanity.
