Williams, 61, and Orlando both escaped serious injury Tuesday when they were bumped by a train passing over them — a miraculous end to a harrowing ordeal that began when Williams felt faint on his way to the dentist.
Witnesses said Orlando barked frantically and tried to stop Williams from tumbling off the platform. Matthew Martin told the New York Post that Orlando leaped onto the tracks as the train approached and kissed Williams to entice him to move.
Williams said Wednesday that he’s “feeling a little bit better” but wasn’t sure how long he’d be hospitalized.
“My head is still a little sore where they put the staples in. There are bruises on my body,” he said. “They’ve still got to run the tests, trying to find out what caused it.”
