TSA worker to be honored for CTA rescue

An employee of the Transportation Security Administration will accept a big award for heroic conduct.

Eddie Palacios jumped onto the Blue Line subway tracks at Chicago Avenue last month when a woman fell off the platform; he frantically waved an approaching train to a safe stop, just 20 feet away, and helped the woman to safety.

Today, Palacios and seven other people will be honored by the Secretary of Homeland Security with the award of valor.
