Some quick-thinking, Boston transit riders are being hailed as heroes after they rescued a man who fell onto a set of subway tracks and was nearly hit by a train.

Boston's Fox 25 reports:
In the surveillance video of the tumble, you can see the lights of an oncoming train pulling up to the platform as the man falls.
