The New York Post reports the axe man, who became legally blind in 2011, thought he was entering a train car at the W. 66th and Broadway No. 1 train station, when he fell several feet onto the tracks below.
Golub's guide dog remained on the platform as local straphangers attempted to hoist the guitarist out of the way of an oncoming train.
"I was thinking about my wife and two boys. I was yelling 'Stop!' I could see the [train's] light coming," he told the NY Post.
Thankfully, Golub avoided being hit head-on by the train, though he was clipped while leaving the tracks. He was treated at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and later released.
"You try so hard to, like, just do everything, and you can't do everything," he told CBS New York about his blindness, which is due to collapsed optic nerve.
