A Good Samaritan remains in critical condition after being rescuing a drunken man from the Staten Island Railway tracks early Sunday morning, reported The New York Daily News.
Steven Santiago, 39, was critically injured after being hit by a train while rescuing a drunken man.
The man had dropped his shoe on the tracks and was reaching to grab it when a train came. When the man couldn't get back onto the platform, Santiago jumped down to help him and was slammed in the head by the train. The drunken man avoided being hit.
Santiago is being treated by the Staten Island University Hospital for head trauma and remains listed in critical condition.
He is a great man who risked his life to save someone he doesn't even know, the man's brother, Edwin Santiago, told The New York Daily News
