A New York train conductor’s quick actions saved a young boy’s life earlier this week.

The conductor, Marcus Higgins, spotted a three-year-old child wandering near the tracks, alarmingly close to an electrified third rail, at Tarrytown Station.

Higgins immediately slammed on the brakes and warned all nearby traffic of the situation.

Video of the harrowing incident shows the train come to a stop, and Higgins then runs down the tracks to rescue the child from danger.

Higgins warned the boy not to touch the electrified rail, but he wasn’t able to understand the danger. A local This prompted Higgins’ coworker, who was still aboard the train, to implore the station to cut the power and remove the danger.

“Emergency, emergency, emergency, I need you to kill rail we got a toddler on the track,” the conductor is heard saying in the video.

According to news reports, the little boy is autistic and non-verbal. The child was separated from his mother when he fell over a barrier.


The child was later reunited with his mother and sister after being brought on board the train by Higgins.
