A dramatic video recorded on the Bronx subway Monday morning shows a man rescuing a 5-year-old girl on a train.
The girl can be seen sneaking out from train No. 4 south on Kingsbridge Road before the man grabs her and slams her onto the side platform. A woman outside the camera can be heard shouting, "Little by little, my love, little by little!" Between sobs.
You can see a crowd trying to comfort the girl once she's on the platform.
Authorities say the girl's 45-year-old father jumped in front of the oncoming train moments earlier with the girl in his arms.
A witness told CBS2 that they saw a man who "had a girl in his wrist and in his arms. The next thing I know, he and she jumped. "
