LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Danny Hay in recognition of his prompt
and heroic efforts to rescue three people on New York City subway tracks
from an oncoming train

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
commend the concerned and heroic acts of those citizens who would volun-
tarily take immediate and appropriate action to protect the health and
safety of others; and
WHEREAS, At 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 7, 2013, MTA train operator
Danny Hay of New York City was at the Delancey Street subway station on
his way to work when he observed an unconscious man lying on the subway
tracks; and
WHEREAS, Responding without hesitation, or concern for his own welfare
and safety, Danny Hay immediately sought to render assistance by calling
for the power to the tracks to be cut off; with the power still on, he
returned to the tracks and found two Good Samaritans along with the
unconscious man still on the tracks in the path of an oncoming F train;
and
WHEREAS, In response to this life-threatening emergency, Danny Hay ran
to the end of the Delancey Street subway station and flashed his flash
light to the operator of the oncoming F train; the operator of the train
was able to successfully stop the train in the nick of time; and
WHEREAS, For his courage and decisive action, taken without due regard
for his own personal safety, Danny Hay has aptly demonstrated his char-
acter and compassion for the welfare of others, personifying, by virtue
of his action, the collective concern of ordinary citizens across the
community of New York State who voluntarily respond without thought of
danger or reward when others are in need of help; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize, honor
and pay tribute to those individuals within the State of New York who
perform rescue operations with courage, diligence and precision, result-
ing in heroic life-saving actions; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Danny Hay of New York City in recognition of his prompt and heroic
efforts to rescue three people on New York City subway tracks from an
oncoming train; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Danny Hay.
