HARLEM, Manhattan (PIX11) — A man known as Subway Superman just won a super prize.
Wesley Autrey, who rescued a stranger on the subway tracks in 2007, won $52,820 in the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes, according to a PCH Dec. 22 post. Autrey said he’d use the money to help his mom and his daughters.
“This is a dream come true,” he said.
Autrey had been entering the sweepstakes every day, according to PCH. He was surprised on Dec. 22 when the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol dropped by with two checks. One represented a Ford Bronco Wildtrak, while the other was its cash value option: $52,820.
The big win came just a few months after Autrey retired from a local construction union, according to PCH.
