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?
