As other commuters fled to the next car, Lozito fought. Although he has no martial arts training, Lozito tried a move he had seen while watching MMA matches. The 260 pounder went for Gelman's legs. The two men then grappled on the floor of the car. Despite receiving several deep cuts, Lozito was able to grab Gelman's knife hand. Transit police joined the fight and Gelman was subdued. Another passenger applied pressure to Lozito's wounds and helped keep him alive. Gelman has been indicted on 13 counts, included four murder charges and the attempted murder of Joe Lozito. Said Lozito from his hospital bed: "I'm glad he picked me. There were a lot of women and children on the train who couldn't defend themselves. He picked me and instinct kicked in."
