Australian Commuters Tip Train Cars to Aid Trapped Man

Posted: Updated:
Dozens of people have helped rescue a fellow commuter in Australia by pushing against train carriages to free the man whose leg had slipped between the platform and the train.
 
Closed-circuit footage released by the Western Australia State Public Transport Authority showed the man lost his footing while boarding the train at a station in the city of Perth.
 
Local media say a passenger alerted railway staff who stopped the train from leaving. When they realized he was stuck, they called on other passengers to help.
 
The footage showed dozens of people rushing to help tilt the carriages to free the man's leg.
 
Local media report the man was believed to have escaped injury and caught the next train.   (AP)
