Catching Up with the Subway Hero
Written by Bwog Staff
As we reported earlier, last week, a Columbia facilities employee jumped three tracks to save a man who had fallen off the subway platform. (Though apparently, the fallen man had fallen due to drunkenness, and not a stroke.) The facilities worked is Veeramuthu Kalimuthu (known as Kali), and his story has since been picked up by Gawker, WCBS, and the Drudge Report. You can watch WCBS’ interview here, by clicking on the “Watercooler” on the right.
Remember how we also reported that he had gone back and jumped over the rails to get back to the other side of the subway? According to WCBS, it was so that he could get back home to his wife and kids. (Aw!)
Kali for class speaker!
