Eric Davis, the twenty-year-old man who fell through a broken sidewalk subway grate in Bed-Stuy on Friday morning has told his story to the Daily News from the confines of his bed at Kings County Hospital, where he's convalescing after plummeting ten feet into a filthy shaft: "I don't feel like it's bad luck ...because I survived. The one thing I did [was] I made sure I didn't bump my head. The lady paramedic made sure I was 100% comfortable while I was on the way to the hospital. She deserves a raise." Davis declined to say whether he plans to sue the MTA, but if a Daily News reporter can get in to talk with him, you can bet Jackie Chiles has already slipped Davis his card.
