Woman falls off moving train; cop’s prompt action saves her life
The image shows the policeman saving a woman's life at a railway station in West Bengal.
The different divisions of the Indian Railways often take to their official Twitter handles to share videos that show how dangerous it can be to board or de-board a moving train. Just like this video shared on the Twitter handle dedicated to South Eastern Railway. The clip shows a policeman jumping into action to save a life of a woman after she falls off a moving train.
“Yesterday, 2 lady passengers tried to de-board Santragachi- Anand Vihar Express in running condition at Purulia station. Losing balance, both of them tripped on the platform. Sri Bablu Kumar, on-duty Sub Inspector of RPF, ran immediately and saved them from a fatal accident,” they wrote while explaining the situation.
The video opens to show a train leaving a platform and suddenly two women start getting down. While one of them falls on the platform away from the moving train, the other person lands in a dangerous spot. Almost instantly, a policeman rushes towards the second woman and drags her to safety.
