“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.
