This is why you should always look where you're going.

First it was a woman falling into a fountain while texting, now it's a 10-year-old Italian boy falling into a subway.

The boy, who was playing his PSP at the time, was seemingly so entrenched in his game he didn't realize he was walking onto the tracks. Luckily the train wasn't coming into the station, and policeman Alessandro Micalizzi saw him fall and was able to save him.

From Gawker:

He was with his mother and sister, and before he fell I saw them out of the corner of my eye and he was completely lost in his game and wasn't looking where he was going.

I just had a few seconds because he had got off a train and mine was due in less than a minute so I acted as quickly as I could, making sure not to touch the rails.
