Man faints in front of approaching subway train
NEW YORK (WABC) -- A man passed out in front of an oncoming subway train at Times Square and lived to talk about it.
The man was standing on a platform at the Times Square subway station on Sunday afternoon when he fainted, apparently due to high blood pressure.
A train came into the station and rolled over him, but did not hit him.
The lucky guy also managed to avoid making contact with the electrified third rail.
He was taken to the hospital. His condition has not been released.
