A sudden gust of wind blew a baby stroller onto the tracks as a train rumbled into a Brooklyn station yesterday — but an unemployed Brooklyn man on his way to a job interview jumped off the platform and saved the tot from certain death, authorities and witnesses said.
“Right before the train came, I was able to pull up the stroller and myself, too,” said Delroy Simmonds, 30.
“He got the baby just in time,” a witness said.
He missed the job interview but after news of his heroics spread, he received numerous job offers and accepted one as a maintenance man at Kennedy Airport.
“It says a lot about his character that he would jump on the tracks to save a (child),” Guy Rodriguez, who hired Simmonds, told the NY Daily News.
