Two men in Washington saved a man who had fallen over the subway ledge. The video shows the 54-year-old driving off the platform slamming into the tracks. 

ABC News reports he was lying still after the fall. 

Exactly why his wheelchair drove off the platform is unknown. The man however will make a full recovery with minor cuts and grazes. 

Metro have warned against jumping on the tracks due to the third rail which can cause severe electrocution. It's best to alert a subway attendant first to cut the track before jumping down.
