Commuters at Centre City Philadelphia subway station had their inner good Samaritans tested when a man fell onto the subway tracks.

The guy staggered towards the edge of the platform and fell on Wednesday night just before 7pm, and luckily for him, one passer by jumped straight down to save him.

Thankfully both the rescuer and the man who originally tripped were fine, and other travellers helped pull the pair back onto the platform before a train came past.

Nice to know that some humans out there still have some common decency about them!
