A Boston transit police officer is credited with saving the life of a suicidal man by grabbing his arm and pulling him to safety just as he was about to teeter from a subway station platform onto the tracks.
Jeremy Parris, 20, of Conway will be among a small group helping Ripley Davenport, of Ireland, to attempt to be the first person to circumnavigate the country of Ireland.
The secessionist movement in Colorado is reassessing — but not abandoning — its dream of forming a 51st state after voters in six of 11 rural counties rejected the proposal Tuesday.
Residents in Weld County, Colo., will vote this November to join eight other counties and form America's 51st state — Northern Colorado.
Detective Sean Conway says he saw the man, drinking from a bottle and yelling incoherently, at the platform's edge at the Park Street Station at about 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Conway tells The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/1uJlnVG ) the man thanked him before being taken to the hospital.
