Watch: Hero cop saves a woman from falling under train in Bengal
Purilia : A Railway Protection Force (RPF) officer acted swiftly to save a life of a woman who was about to get runover by her train. The incident has been reported from Bengal's Purulia station. In an attempt to de-board the moving train, the woman lost her balance and fell in the gap between the train and the platform.
In a CCTV footage tweeted by the Railways, two women are seen jumping off the Santragachi-Anand Vihar Express just as it gathers speed. While one of them lands on the platform, the other loses her balance and swerves dangerously close to the gap between the train and platform.
RPF Sub-Inspector Bablu Kumar can be seen running instantly towards the other woman and pulls her away onto the platform just in time. Several others are also seen rushing in to help the woman, including a passenger who tries to jump in to save her.
Despite regular warnings from the train authorities, people can be often seen boarding and de-boarding the moving trains. In the same CCTV footage, one passenger can be seen boarding the train as it leaves the platform.
