It is not every day when we witness a hero in action. Check out this video when a group of good samaritans rushes to save a man in a wheelchair on the subway tracks.
It was just another day on the subway train in New York City when a man in a wheelchair fell off of the platform and onto the tracks. Terrifyingly, this occurred just minutes before the subway was going to arrive. A brave man jumped onto the tracks and others began helping the hero save the endangered man.
The hero quickly threw the wheelchair up to another person on the platform as one man grabbed the man’s hands and the good samaritans picked up the handicapped man, pulling him to safety.
Then, the hero who had leaped to help the man in the wheelchair swiftly jumped up to the platform with the help of another person pulling him off the tracks.
It was the kind of thing you normally only see in the movies, but this was real life. Thankfully everyone was ok in the end before the next subway pulled up.
This video reminds us of the story of the Good Samaritan in the Bible. A man on the side of the road needed help and a kind stranger chose to meet his needs. May we be reminded that Christ calls us to be servants to others and help those in hard times. Just as Jesus laid down His life for us, we can be sacrificial and bless others by serving them in times of trouble.
“But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.” Luke 10:33-34
