Christopher Knafelc is being hailed as a hero after jumping to rescue a 63-year-old man who fell on the train tracks of a North Philadelphia subway station, reports Philly.com.

Knafelc was waiting for his train on a bench at the Cecil B. Moore station when he saw the man go down.

Knafelc was the only person that tried to help.

“I can’t imagine not helping someone in that situation,” Knafelc said.
