Four officers save elderly man at Manhattan subway station

Some quick-acting police officers saved a man who fell and hit his head on a Manhattan subway platform, the city police department said Friday night.

Four officers responded around 9:40 p.m. last Saturday at the 110th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station in East Harlem.

Witnesses told police that the 62-year-old man was breathing heavily before he fell and hit his head on the platform.

The man, who was bleeding heavily, was taken to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery for his head injury. He is currently in the ICU in stable condition, police said.
