Hero who saved baby from subway tracks gets new jobJun-29-2012
The unemployed hero who plucked a baby from the subway tracks in Brooklyn was reunited with the tot Wednesday - right after getting a new job.
"That's the little man that got me a job today," Delroy Simmonds said during a reunion with little David Zamara at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
"It feels amazing. Just seeing him alive," Simmonds, a father of two, told the 9-month-old child's mom, Maria Zamara.
"It's a miracle." Simmonds, who had been unemployed for over a year, went straight to the hospital after getting hired as a maintenance man at Kennedy Airport.
"I remember you," Maria Zamara told Simmonds. "Thank you." She said her boy, whose head was bandaged, is "doing fine."
Just two days after showing bravery in the face of peril, Simmonds accepted a position Wednesday with a janitorial company even as other job offers began to pour in.
"Thank you, Lord. Thank you, thank you, thank you," an overjoyed Simmonds said when ABM Janitorial Services at Kennedy hired him. "I'm just excited to start working," Simmonds told the Daily News.
