Cecil Williams sits with his guide dog Orlando in his hospital bed following a fall onto subway tracks from the platform at 145th Street, Dec. 17, 2013, in New York.

"I'm feeling amazed," Williams told the AP. "I feel that God, the powers that be, have something in store for me. They didn't take me away this time. I'm here for a reason."

"[Orlando] gets me around and saves my life on a daily basis," he said. Williams is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
