According to an eyewitness quoted on Perezhilton.com, subway performer Damon Scott, a man known for singing 'Someone Like You' in the 86th Street station, played hero yesterday morning (Feb. 27) and "jumped to the rescue of someone who'd fallen onto the tracks."
Scott reportedly ran, leaped to the other side of the tracks, and pulled the victim -- a man with a cane who "either jumped or fell" -- back onto the platform. And not a moment too soon, as the next train came barreling through "less than 40 seconds later," the witness said.
It all goes back to the power of Adele. Had she not written and recorded 'Someone Like You,' Scott might never have been there to sing it, and the MTA rider might have died. Of course, had the British singer not had her heart ripped out by the guy that inspired '21,' she might never have written the song. Maybe he, like Scott, deserves a medal.
