NEW YORK — Michael Lodespoto calls them "my angels" — four strangers who came to his rescue after he "crumpled and fell" off a Brooklyn subway platform and lay unconscious and bleeding on the tracks.

"They're special men. They're a part of my life now," said Lodespoto, of Long Island, who passed out as he stood on the Atlantic Avenue platform in Downtown Brooklyn on Aug. 13.
