It’s easy to take our abilities and senses for granted. Many people have to adapt to life without being able to see, smell, or hear. Though this modern world poses so many dangers, people with disabilities are able to thrive on their own.

Accidents happen, though. A blind man almost got into one when he nearly walked out in front of a train.

In the security camera clip below, you can see the man walking straight for the tracks. He’s not aware that in just a few seconds, a train will come speeding by.

But just behind him, a man sees the danger and leaps to grab the blind man. He catches him by the back of his coat just before he steps onto the tracks.

Just a few short moments later, a commuter train comes zooming by. The blind man can barely believe his luck!

One woman approaches the Good Samaritan and pats him on the back to thank him for being so quick. The man he saved also thanks him, it seems.

Then, after the train passes, everyone resumes their separate activities, power-walking toward their destinations. It was almost as if nothing had happened.

The blind man, who has been identified as Mike Wyatt, is now looking for the kind stranger who kept him from being struck and killed. He knows nothing about him or who he is, but hopes that they will cross paths once again very soon.

Please SHARE if you think this Good Samaritan deserves praise for his simple yet lifesaving actions!
