Unemployed hero who rescued B’klyn baby gets a job6/28/2012
Yesterday we told you about Delroy Simmonds, the unemployed father-of-two who skipped a job interview to leap off a Brooklyn, New York, subway platform and rescue a toddler whose stroller had blown onto the tracks. He didn't want praise, he just wanted a job. Now, thanks to his incredible story going viral, he's getting both! A janitorial firm at JFK Airport heard about his heroics and offered him a job. "We read the story and were like, 'Wow! This guy is unbelievable. This guy is a hero,'" said manager Guy Rodriguez, adding that his actions "say a lot about his character." Simmonds says he can't wait to get started and "appreciates" the opportunity. Humble to the end, like a true hero.
Would you have offered this man a job?
