TSA Officer Jumps on Tracks to Save Woman

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.
