Washingon D.C.'s Metro hero: 'Things happen so fast, you have no time to really think'

What would you do if a stranger fell off a train platform on to the track right in the path of an oncoming train? Would you jump in and help?

Well, this August one brave man did. When a commuter fell onto the Virginia Square metro tracks, Dimas Pinzon, a 57-year-old retired marine, hopped off the opposite platform and ran over two fully electrified tracks to save the commuter as a train was approaching. Newly released video catches the rescue on tape.

He decribes the experience with John and Kiran on today’s American Morning.
