At a subway station in the Bronx, New York, a group of teenagers was involved in an incident that left one person hurt and another person dead while many were celebrating the New Year.
According to the New York Post, a 38-year-old guy was inebriated and “making a disturbance” while waiting on the platform at approximately 2:40 a.m. He was also reportedly blowing a “New Year’s horn,” according to authorities.
The 38-year-old guy was then attacked by a group of adolescents who “displayed a knife and started assaulting him,” according to a report citing police, and at one point, the victim fell to the subway tracks.
He shattered his arm, although it’s unclear if he fell or was pushed. Then a train came along.
A kind person ran out onto the tracks to assist the hurt, unknown man. Resident Roland Hueston was then killed when he was struck by a train.
The 36-year-old was praised as a hero for risking his life to save the victim who had avoided being hit by the train.
The gang fled the area after the attack, but surveillance cameras in the metro captured their image.
The victim was taken to the hospital, given medical attention, and ultimately released.
Basilia Paulino, the mother of the survivor victim, said she was devastated to learn what had happened.
Paulino told the New York Post, “He told me they attacked him. A group hit him and threw him into the rails after they had finished.
She said, “He’s in so much pain that he could hardly speak.
She also expressed her deep gratitude for Hueston’s courage.
Paulino cried, “I’m sorry about that man.” “I’m stumped for words. He ran to help my son, and when he arrived, something happened. That guy belongs in the splendor of God.
A 16-year-old boy and two 17-year-old boys were later taken into custody in connection with the incident on accusations of murder, robbery, gang assault, and assault.
Then, on Friday, April 1, according to police records acquired by CNN, 19-year-old Noel Rosado was detained on suspicion of murder, manslaughter, robbery, gang assault, and assault in connection with the event.
I sincerely hope that all individuals accountable for this horrible atrocity are found and given just punishment.
My thoughts and prayers are with Roland Hueston’s family and friends because of the bravery that cost him his life when he stepped in to help a stranger. He deserves to be recognized as a true hero forever.

A kindhearted person lost their lives while attempting to save a man who had fallen onto subway tracks during a gang attack in New York City.
The assault victim, a 38 years old man, was approached by multiple people at around 2:40 a.m. on the northbound B/D train platform in the Fordham Road subway station in the Bronx, according to a statement from the New York City Police Department.
The assault victim eventually fell to the ground on the subway rails as the group “displayed a knife and began assaulting him,” according to the police. He either fell or was pushed; it’s uncertain.
A witness, 36, who was trying to assist the victim descended to the tracks but was “then struck by the oncoming train, causing his death,” according to police.
Police claim that although the assault victim was not hit by the train, a local hospital treated and released him after discovering a fractured arm.
To locate anyone who may have witnessed the incident or any of the alleged attackers, police claimed the suspected gang left the station in unknown directions. They have also released surveillance photographs from the scene.
According to city records, the 188th Street subway station is part of the 46th Precinct, which has witnessed 34 felony assaults in the last 28 days.
