Posted on Wednesday about a blind man who had fallen on the tracks of the 1 train at 66th Street.
Thankfully, it appears as though both he and his dog are OK.
The Daily News has the follow-up story (thanks to MUW reader Roger for posting the link in the comments section).
Jazz guitarist Jeff Golub, 57, mistakenly thought he was walking through a subway car’s open door when he fell to the tracks. He was apparently pulled to safety by people on the platform just as a train was pulling into the station.
Per the Daily News:
“I was being dragged along the platform,” the visually impaired artist said. “I was thinking about my wife and two boys. I was yelling ‘Stop!’ I could see the [train’s] light coming.”
Early reports indicated Mr. Golub was “clipped” by a train. It’s unclear if his comment about being “dragged along the platform” is in reference to being pulled from the tracks or from contact with a subway car.
Either way, judging from the bandage on his knee and the smile on his face, he looks like he’s in pretty good condition.
Nice happy ending to a potentially tragic story.
