With all the subway deaths that have been happening lately, it's nice to hear about one that was actually avoided.

Christopher Knafelc is being hailed as a hero after jumping to rescue a 63-year-old man who fell on the train tracks of a North Philadelphia subway station, reports Philly.com.

Knafelc was waiting for his train on a bench at the Cecil B. Moore station when he saw the man go down. Without out hesitation, the 32-year-old hero sprang into action and jumped down to the tracks to save him, knowing that a train would be arriving in just a few minutes. Knafelc was the only person that tried to help.

"I can't imagine not helping someone in that situation," Knafelc said.
