It turns out not all New York City subway heroics involve a man in a skin-tight leotard.

Delroy Simmonds, an unemployed Brooklyn man, missed a job interview for the best reason ever: He had to save a baby from an oncoming train.

Simmonds was waiting for the subway in Cypress Hills on his way to interview for a maintenance position at a warehouse when a forceful gust of wind blew a 9-month-old in a stroller onto the tracks.

He said: "It had to be 30, 40 miles an hour. There was a woman with four kids. One was in a stroller. The wind blew the baby onto the tracks."

Simmonds hopped down to the tracks and hoisted the still-strapped-in baby back onto the platform, just as the J train came barreling around the corner.

In his words: "It was the fatherly instinct. I have two daughters of my own—8 and 5. I was being a father. I would have done it for any baby,"

Suffice to say, Simmonds deserves another interview—or better yet, a job!
