An amazing rescue was caught on video last week in New York City, and many are calling it a Thanksgiving miracle.
The NYPD rescued a man stuck on the subway tracks just moments before a train rolled into the station.
Two officers were doing a platform inspection when commuters on the opposite platform flagged them down to say a man had fallen onto the tracks.
They had to run upstairs and across the street to get to the other side of the station.
A bystander was already trying to help the man, and the officers sprang into action to hoist him up onto the platform.
You can see the train entering the station just a few seconds after the officers themselves got off the tracks.
A third officer entered the station and gave the man medical treatment while they waited for emergency services.
The man was hospitalized and treated for minor injuries.
