ARLnow has uncovered video of a late-August rescue at the Virginia Square Metro Station, in which Dimas Pinzon lept down to the rails and scurried across the tunnel to aid a man who had fallen on the tracks.

Pinzon, a 57-year-old retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel, told NBC4's John Schriffen that he didn't think but simply acted.

While the man who fell was in no immediate danger of being struck -- an approaching Metro train had stopped -- he still might have suffered further from whatever medical calamity appeared to be affecting him.
