New York subway hero gets call from Reagan

President Reagan was so impressed with reports of a New York man who jumped onto subway tracks to save a blind man's life that he personally called to congratulate the hero, the White House said.

Reginald Andrews had jumped between the cars of a stopped train in New York Monday to rescue a blind man who had fallen onto the tracks. The President's phone call wasn't all Mr. Andrews received. The unemployed father of eight also got a job. Mr. Andrews was returning from an interview at a meat packing plant when he rescued the blind man. Later, an executive of the plant called and offered him a job.
