Meeet Wesley Autrey, Subway Hero in Video


While we often read the story of these acts of heroics like Wesley Autrey saving the mans life on the New York Subway, they disappear from our conscienceness just as quickly. So when I saw this video clip from CBS News, I had to share it just to remind you the unselfishness that the man posesses.

      Wesley Autrey is amazing, how many of us would have put our life on the line like he did? I would have had to think about it, and then it would have been to late.

      I saw this guy on the news.Amazing!. He risked his life to save a stranger. Enough said. Sharp contrast to the story in Aruba where they’ve threw the victim under the bus over and over to save their own life.

      The man that had the seizure was an art student. I thought that it was especially nice that the university gave the two children scholarships in honor of their father.

      Truly, amazing.

      We’ve been through a lot here in New Orleans. We’ve seen a lot of destruction, but we’ve also seen a lot of heros. It’s great to see that N.Y.C. is reaping some of the seeds that’s it’s sown into the lives of the people here. Thank God for people like Westley Autrey.
