NEW YORK (AP) - Police say officers pulled a man from the subway tracks in Brooklyn who had been attempting suicide.

The officers responded to the station near the Brooklyn Museum early Saturday after a 911 call by the man who said he was going to lie down on the tracks before the call disconnected. He was standing in the track area, crossing over the electrified third rails when the two officers radioed to cut the power to the track. The NYPD says the officers got down into the track area, and helped the 25-year-old man onto the platform, who began to cry uncontrollably.

He was transported to a hospital in stable condition.
