Blind Man Searches for Stranger Who Saved His Life

A blind man in his 60s is searching for the young man who pulled him back from an approaching train and saved his life last Thursday, Nov. 9.

Mike Wyatt stood at the stairs to the Peoria train station in Aurora, Colorado, on Monday, looking for the young man who saved his life days earlier.

Wyatt was heading back home after visiting friends in Longmont, and was about to cross the tracks to transfer to another train, unaware that a train was approaching. Seconds before the train pulled up, a man can be seen on security camera footage pulling him back with both arms.

“I am so stoked right now thinking that guy is going to come down that ramp [from the platform],”  Wyatt told 9 News.

As people pass, he holds a sign that reads “I am looking for the young man that saved my life last Thursday.”

In the video by 9 News, he can be seen talking to passersby in hopes that they have some info about the man.

Although he hasn’t yet found him, 9 News did find a woman who saw the incident. She said she felt inspired by it.

“People are good,” said Miranda, one of the witnesses.

9News writes that Wyatt is thankful because the man has made it possible for Wyatt to be part of his grandchildren’s lives as they grow up.

“You live and you die,” Wyatt told 9 News. “It’s what you do in between, and this young man did a great thing for me and that’s what I want to say to him. Thank you.’”

Wyatt told 9 News he will come to the station one more day to look for the man.

“I will be always remembering this man and his kindness,” he said.
