Commuters Push Train To Free Trapped Passenger

Perth Commuters Mobilize To Push Train Off Trapped Man

A passenger on a commuter railroad near Perth, Australia, was rescued by his fellow passengers after he slipped and got his leg caught in the gap between the train door and the platform — and the entire scene was caught on video.

“He stood in the doorway and as he was sort of taking up his position there, one leg slipped outside the door, slipped outside the gap and he was stuck,” Transperth spokesman David Hynes told ABC Australia.

Hynes said the driver was told not to move the train as passengers and staff got to work.

“Then our staff who were there at the time got the passengers, and there were lots of them, off the train, and organized them to sort of rock, tilt the train backwards away from the platform so they were able to get him out and rescue him.”

Watch the video, below, to see a perfect example of how a little teamwork can save the day.

Remarkably, the only injuries may have been to the man’s pride.

“He was walking so he was reasonably OK,” Taylor told Perthnow. “He seemed to be a bit sheepish, because right where he fell was the ‘mind the gap’ writing.”

WAToday reports that the man was treated at the scene and took a later train.

“We were really fortunate that the staff were there straight away… and all of the passengers not only listened to the instructions from staff, but pitched in and helped,” Transperth spokeswoman Claire Krol told AFP. “This is a real case of passengers of working together… and people power are the perfect words to describe it.”
