BRONX - A man saved an elderly woman Sunday after she fell onto train tracks at the Hunts Point train station.

Douglas Murphy, 32, jumped off the platform to help the 82-year-old woman after she was accidentally bumped by teens and knocked onto the tracks.

"I thought of her like it was my mother," Murphy said. "I would like someone to do that for me, if that was my mother on the train tracks."
