Sandy E. Levine saved Anibal Ruiz from being struck by a train, New York, New York, October 16, 1994. After falling from the platform in a subway station, Ruiz, 43, lay unconscious on the track on which a train was approaching. On the platform, Levine, 32, disc jockey, was alerted to the situation. He immediately ran on the platform toward Ruiz, then jumped to the track bed and ran the remaining distance to him. As the train, in emergency braking, bore down on them, Levine grasped Ruiz and rolled him into the low, narrow space under the edge of the platform. The front of the train then passed them before stopping 150 feet beyond. Ruiz was taken to the hospital for treatment, as was Levine, who sustained leg injury.
