The description reads in part, “CCTV footage shows the toddler running to the edge of the platform at a Milan metro station and jumping down on to the tracks below.”

“It isn’t until the brave 18-year-old Italian student throws off his backpack and jumps down that the boy is safe.” (RELATED: Man Sexually Harasses Woman, Gets Immediately Beat Down — BRAWL Ensues)

In my opinion, this guy is a total hero. As much as I’d like to think I’d be a hero in a situation like this, I might hesitate a little bit to jump down onto the tracks like that, but this guy just dove right in.

We need a little bit more everyday heroism like this.
