In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," an off duty TSA officer becomes an unlikely hero. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Eddie Palacios, 50, was waiting for the train in Chicago to go to O’Hare Airport when he heard someone yell that a woman had fallen onto the tracks.
Palacios recognized he was wearing an orange sweatshirt that would be very visible to the conductor.
He jumped onto the rails and waved his arms to stop the approaching train.
“We have each other, and if we can’t depend on each other, then we really can’t depend on much then,” said Palacios.
The train stopped in time, and the woman was pulled to safety.

"What I've said consistently is that each time Russia takes these kinds of steps that are designed to destabilize Ukraine and violate their sovereignty, that there are going to be consequences and what you've already seen is the Russian economy weaker, capital fleeing out of Russia," President Barack Obama told CBS.
In an ominous echo of the events that led to Moscow's annexation of Crimea last month, the Donetsk People's Republic wants a referendum no later than May 11, the self-declared chairman of the people's council told CNN on Thursday.
The referendum will essentially ask residents which country they want to be a part of, said Denis Pushilin.
