Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, designer, writer, and educator. He designed more than 1,000 structures over a creative period of 70 years. Wright believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was exemplified in Fallingwater (1935), which has been called “the best all-time work of American architecture”. Wright played a key role in the architectural movements of the twentieth century, influencing architects worldwide through his work and the work of hundreds of apprentices who studied at the Taliesin Fellowship.
Cameron Hollopeter, of Littleton, Massachusetts, fell onto the tracks at Broadway’s 137th Street station on January 2, 2007. Another subway passenger, 50-year-old Wesley Autrey of Manhattan, was standing on the platform with his two daughters whom he was taking home so he could go to his construction job.

Autrey was waiting for a train with his two young girls at the 137th Street – City College subway station in Manhattan on January 2, 2007. He and two ladies witnessed a young guy, Cameron Hollopeter, suffering a seizure at 12:45 p.m. Autrey took a pen from Hollopeter and used it to hold his jaw open. Hollopeter slipped off the platform after the seizure, landing on the tracks.
Autrey noticed the lights of an approaching train as Hollopeter lay on the rails. Autrey leapt onto the tracks while one of the ladies held Autrey’s kids back from the edge of the platform. He believed he could get Hollopeter off the rails, but he realized he didn’t have enough time to drag Hollopeter away. Instead, he shielded Hollopeter by hurling himself over his body in a drainage hole between the tracks and holding him down. Despite the fact that the train’s operator engaged the brakes, all but two cars went over them, near enough to leave oil on his cap.
