Only in New York

1 Dec

Two pretty memorable stories came from the Big Apple this weekend alone.

1) Man Saves Fellow Passenger Who Fell Onto the Subway Tracks: Unassuming Carlos Flores was on his way to work over the work when he saw a fellow man fall onto the tracks because of a medical emergency. Flores jumped down below and helped haul the much larger man to safety. What a hero…well until you hear why he decided to save the man. Following the rescue, Flores took that same train to work.

“I was thinking, if he gets hit I can’t go to work. It’s Sunday. I can’t miss out. It’s a time-and-a-half day. Christmas is around the corner. You need these time-and-a-half days”

2. Beauty Queen Wants One Last Moment in the Sun: Well, she was only going to be Miss New York for a couple more days. Davina Reeves decided to make the most of them. At the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the beauty queen decided to jump into Miss USA Rima Fakih’s float uninvited. Wearing her sash and crown, she rode in the parade for several blocks before security ordered her off.

“It’s the biggest parade in the world, and my sister and I were like, ‘Hey, this is my last weekend as Miss New York — let’s go out with a bang.’ At first, it was just fantastic, but then there was this woman who said, ‘Miss New York, I need you to leave. I don’t care how you leave, just go.’ We had a blast. This title is about growing, about being courageous and fearless. That’s what life’s about.”
