The timely action of a Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel helped save a woman from falling on the tracks and being run over by a local train at Mumbai’s Kurla station earlier this week.

The incident took place around 10:15 pm on Tuesday when the female passenger was deboarding the Panvel-bound train to recover a fallen bag at platform 7 of Kurla railway station.

A CCTV footage of the incident shows the woman slipping and falling at the edge of the platform.

In no time, an alert RPF personnel and other commuters spot her and rush to her aid. They can be seen pulling the woman to safety as the train leaves the platform, averting a major mishap.
