A legally blind woman who tumbled onto subway tracks in Georgia just as a commuter train pulled into the station is back in Brooklyn, telling friends about her brush with death.

Addie Norfleet walked across the platform and right onto tracks she couldn't see.

"I looked down at train tracks, oh no," she said. "So I tried to get up and get back on the platform. That's when I saw the guy."

The guy she mentions was a station manager who jumped onto the tracks to save her. Meanwhile, other passengers waved frantically to stop the approaching train, which stopped just a few feet short of hitting Norfleet.
