NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 23:  A New York City Subway pulls up to a station on February 23, 2010 in New York City.  Najibullah Zazi, a former airport shuttle driver, pleaded guilty Monday to plotting to blow up New York City subways. Zazi, who grew up in New York and lived in Colorado, pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit murder in a foreign country, conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction and to providing material support for a terrorist organization. Zazi, 25, faces a life prison sentence without parole at sentencing in June.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Once again the hunt is on for a group of subway riders who rescued a fellow straphanger who fell onto the tracks. Alexa Conto, a 20-year-old fashion student, tells the Daily News that she believes she fainted while waiting for the D train at Brooklyn's 71st Street station on Tuesday morning. Several people jumped onto the tracks to save her, and the MTA operator spotted them and stopped the train just in time. New Yorkers can be pretty decent, when we aren't beating each other with crutches.
