Metro Hero Interviewed on CNN, CBS Early Show — We have to apologize to Virginia Square Metro Hero Dimas Pinzon. He has apparently been hounded by reporters since we posted surveillance video of him walking over two electrified rails to come to the aid of an injured man who had fallen on the track.

Oh, and an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show is possibly in the works. More from HamptonRoads.com.
