Two METRO police officers were honored Wednesday for saving the life of Houston man.

The agency released surveillance video from back in October when 36-year-old Christopher Gray collapsed at a light rail station. He fell on the tracks and a good Samaritan pulled him from the tracks, then two METRO officers -- John Zepeda and Leonard Wagner -- started CPR.

METRO says both officers followed a procedure known as "the chain of survival" and today they were honored for their life saving assistance.

EMS crews took Gray to the Medical Center and he is doing well. The good Samaritan who pulled him from the tracks wants to remain out of the spotlight.
