In what is a polar opposite from the previous entry, MTA Bus Driver Victor Nacasio is a hero after saving a man in the Bronx who was having a seizure. Here is the story courtesy of News 12 The Bronx:
An MTA bus driver is being hailed as a hero after he helped save a man who was having a seizure.
Victor Nacasio sprang into action at the corner of East Fordham Road and Webster Avenue when he noticed a man violently shaking on a bench. Bystanders say Nacasio called 911 and stayed on the line until emergency workers arrived.
Photos snapped by passersby show Nacasio following the 911 dispatcher’s instructions and turning the man onto his side while trying to keep him calm.
The man, who is homeless, was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital. Bystanders say he was able to walk to the ambulance on his own.
Nacasio had been on his break when the incident happened, and afterward, he got back to work.

A big kudos to Mr. Nacasio for springing into action & saving the life of a stranger. We always read or hear bad stories about MTA workers but here is just more proof to what I have always known, the force contains a lot of great people!
