NBC New York -The subway hero who saved a baby in a stroller after it was was swept by a strong wind onto an elevated subway track in Brooklyn was reunited with the family on Wednesday.
Delroy Simmonds was on his way to a job interview at about 1 p.m. Tuesday when a powerful blast of air carried the stroller from the elevated track onto the J train platform at Van Siclen Avenue. The baby and stroller both landed on the tracks.
Simmonds immediately jumped onto the tracks, rescuing the baby before the next train came into the station.
He visited the boy and his mother Wednesday at Brookdale Hospital, where the child was being treated for a small head injury.
Simmonds said the mother thanked him, and he was happy to see the child is doing well.
Simmonds shrugged off his new status, pointing out that he is a father and would expect anyone else to do the same for his child.
