Two alert cops at Ahmedabad railway station in India saved a man from coming under the wheels of a running train.

A 15 seconds CCTV footage of the incident shows a yet to be identified young passenger with a backpack hurrying down the staircase and run towards the already moving train to board it, but loses hold of the handlebar of the train coach and slips. Even as he gets dragged on the platform, two alert cops standing on duty nearby rush to his help and push him into the coach, saving his life from certain death.

The cops have been identified as Railway Protection Force Police Sub Inspectors Rajesh Yadav and Ashok Kumar, who have been commended for their quick reflex and averting an unfortunate incident by their seniors.

“On September 23, Train No 12915 Ashram Superfast Express running from Ahmedabad Junction to Old Delhi Junction had departed from Platform No. 10 of Ahmedabad Junction at its scheduled time of 6.30 pm. As the train was picking up speed, a passenger tried to board the moving train and slipped. He was about to fall into the gap between the platform and the moving train. He was saved in the nick of time from being crushed by duty officers SI Rajesh Yadav and SI Ashok Kumar who were present at the platform, and was safely pushed back into the coach,” said RPF Police Inspector Gracious Fernandes.

Using the incident as an example to caution passengers, the Ministry of Railways, Government of India, tweeted, “HOWEVER FIT AND SMART YOU ARE, PL. DONT TRY TO ENTRAIN/DETRAIN A MOVING TRAIN.”
