A recent incident took place at Manhattan where blind man after losing consciousness fell down and tumbled to the Subways Track and was struck with a train. His Guide god in attempt to save him also fell on the tracks along with the man. However, the good news is that none of them have suffered serious injuries and both are well now.
Cecil Williams, 61, told The Associated Press from his hospital bed that he was on his way to the dentist during the morning rush hour when he felt faint on the 125th Street platform. His guide dog, a black Labrador named Orlando, is trained to protect him from going over the edge.

I’m feeling amazed,” Williams said. “I feel that God, the powers that be, have something in store from me. They didn’t take me away this time. I’m here for a reason.” He also expressed his gratitude to emergency crews that pulled him from the Subway with a stretcher and even the bystanders on the platform.
Both Williams and Orlando were taken to the hospital quickly, where they were given necessary medical care and are expected to recover soon.
