Just A Year?!

Not to over-simplify matters or anything, but:

1. Teenager has seizure on subway platform.

2. Teenager falls off of platform.

3. Train approaches. You know, one of those stainless steel ones where each car weighs 73,900 pounds.

4. Guy with two little kids present jumps down on top of teenager and pins him under oncoming train.

5. Mayor Bloomberg awards Guy with city's highest honor, the Bronze Medallion.

6. Donald Trump gives Guy $10,000. Various other donors set up a scholarship for his children, &c.

7. MTA gives Guy one year's worth of free subway passes.

...Is it just me, or does the MTA seem a little stingy after this guy managed to erase one notch on their "annual fatalities" list?

Well, in comparison, yeah. I was trying to figure out how they both survived, until I saw the computer reenactment. I say lifetime pass for him.
