My friend was waiting on the E train platform at 42nd Street and noticed this guy laying on the tracks.
He and some of the other straphangers yelled at him to get off the tracks with no response. Hearing the train approaching, he and another guy jumped down, heaved the guy onto the platform and then lifted themselves out.
THEN, the guy tried to roll BACK over the platform edge! They had to hold him down as the train rolled in.
