Police Officer Saves Distracted PSP-Playing Boy That Fell On Railroad Tracks [VIDEO]

Posted Feb 4, 2011

We should not let technology distract us from real life. In this video, a 10 year old Italian boy fell into a subway as he was distracted by his Sony PSP. Fortunately the train was not coming into the station and police officer Alessandro Micalizzi saw him fall and saved him. Below is a quote from the officer.

He was with his mother and sister, and before he fell I saw them out of the corner of my eye and he was completely lost in his game and wasn’t looking where he was going. I just had a few seconds because he had got off a train and mine was due in less than a minute so I acted as quickly as I could, making sure not to touch the rails.
