NYC: Video shows good Samaritan tackling subway slasher

Incredible video shows a hero good Samaritan tackling a crazed knifeman who had started stabbing a stranger on a Manhattan subway platform.

The footage shows the attacker — clad all in black — strolling on the platform in Union Square last Wednesday night before he pounced on a 54-year-old woman, who was slashed several times.

But onlooker Sean Conaboy immediately leaped into action, the clip shows — racing over and pushing the knifeman off his victim, then jumping on him again when he went back to the screaming woman.

Conaboy then pinned the knifeman from behind with a jiu-jitsu-style hold, while others helped to restrain the maniac as he tried to bite Conaboy.
