Meet Veeramuthu Kalimuthu, a Columbia University mechanic with the courage and electrical knowledge to jump over several 600-volt subway rails to save a reportedly intoxicated man who fell onto the tracks on the other side of the station. The guy was immobile and significantly heavier than Kalimuthu, but with some help he was lifted up to safety with about a minute to spare before the next train came along. Kalimuthu is also kind of an insane family man: he jumped back over the various rails to catch his next train home to his wife and kids. The story already made Drudge, so Kalimuthu will probably be a national hero by morning. Video clip excerpted from WCBS' coverage after the jump.
