Delroy Got a JOB After Saving Nine Month Old Baby's Life....
The hero who plucked a baby from the subway tracks in Brooklyn as a train bore down on him has landed a job.
Just two days after showing bravery in the face of peril, Delroy Simmonds, who had been unemployed for over a year, accepted a position Wednesday with a janitorial company.
“Thank you, Lord. Thank you, thank you, thank you,” an overjoyed Simmonds said when ABM Janitorial Services at Kennedy Airport hired him.
“I’m just excited to start working,” Simmonds told the Daily News. “I appreciate someone giving me the opportunity.”
Guy Rodriguez, project manager for the janitorial company, said it was a no-brainer hiring someone who risked his life to save a child.
“It says a lot about his character that he would jump on the tracks to save a (child),” said Rodriguez. “We are happy to hire Delroy. We are honored.
Simmonds will earn $9.50 an hour, about $2 more than new hires are paid at the company.
He’ll be working as a maintenance man in Terminal Three at the airport, but he will also be responsible for keeping his eyes open for potential danger — which he’s already shown he can do.
On Tuesday, Simmonds was headed to interview with another company at JFK when he turned into a superhero at the Van Siclen Ave. station in Cypress Hills.
A strong gust of wind blew a baby strapped into a stroller onto the elevated track. Simmonds, a father of two, jumped onto the tracks and hoisted the bleeding child to the safety of the platform as a J train bore down on them.
"We read the story and were like, ‘Wow! This is unbelievable. This guy is a hero,’” Rodriguez said.
Simmonds insists he was just doing what he hoped anyone in a similar situation would do, and seems surprised at the reaction over his good deed.
“It’s crazy,” he said, trying on his new uniform, a light blue striped shirt with the ABM logo. “It feels great.”
