An East Harlem Hero...Whatever His Reasons

Carlos Flores just wanted to go to work and get his overtime pay. So, on Sunday when Flores was waiting at the 103rd Street subway station and noticed a man had fallen on the tracks and needed needed help, he jumped in and saved him. According to the New York Daily News, "I was thinking, if he gets hit I can't go to work. It's Sunday. I can't miss out. It's a time-and-a-half day," said Flores.
By the way, he made the train and got to work. Phew!

An honest hero...I can't decide if that's refreshing or not. But I wouldn't have turned him away if I was the one in trouble.

What do you think of the Honest East Harlem Hero?

  1. Maybe he's just being modest. In any case, this isn't one of those 'it's the thought that counts' situations.
