THE BRONX - Two police officers in the Bronx are being praised for pulling a man to safety after he fell onto subway tracks. 

Officers Bhowmik and Wong are assigned to the borough's 43rd Precinct, but were working on the NYPD's counter-terrorism initiative at West 4th Street in Manhattan. 

That's where a 32-year-old fell onto the northbound tracks for the A, C and E trains. The cops grabbed his arm and leg, and pulled him to safety right before the train came in. 

The officers earned themselves a shoutout on the NYPD’s Facebook page.
