Two officers of the New York Police Department rescued a man who fell onto subway tracks minutes before a train approached the station in Queens.

The incident happened a little before 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at the 90th Street and Roosevelt Avenue station, according to one of the officer's body cam footage.

Video footage from the incident shows two officers, Jonathan Valle and David Carnarte, standing on the platform when a man slipped and fell onto the tracks of the southbound 7 train.

The officers sprang into action, running towards the man and pulling him back up.

One of the officers jumped onto the tracks to lift the man, while Officer Carnate pulled and hoisted the unresponsive man off the tracks. With the help of a good Samaritan, they were able to pull the man back to safety just as the train arrived, said the NYPD.

Emergency medical services arrived at the station and administered first aid to the man before taking him to a hospital.

The NYPD said the man, identified as a 23-year-old Bronx resident, was taken to a local hospital and was said to be in stable condition.
