A woman shoved into the Brooklyn-bound Q train tracks at Union Square was saved by two bystanders on Monday night. Suzanne Trotman only suffered bruises as she was pulled from the tracks less than a minute before a train pulled in.
Two people, a man and a woman, jumped into the tracks to help Trotman out. Trotman told the Post she 'got up really quickly," adding, "Good thing I didn't get knocked out... I kept telling myself, 'I'm not going to die like this.'" When the train pulled in, others stopped the person who apparently pushed her from getting on board.
Police arrested 24-year-old Tenesha Thompson for reckless endangerment and assault. Witnesses say she seemed to be talking to herself, saying, "You don't know what she did to me," repeatedly. And Trotman wants to thank the two Good Samaritans who helped her out of the tracks safely, "You hear stories of things like this, but you don't think it can ever happen to you."
At the beginning of the year, a man jumped into the subway tracks when a young man had a seizure and fell. Wesley Autrey covered the man's body with his own as a train passed above them and turned into a hero for all of us.
