VIDEO: Commuters In Australia Push Train To Free Man Trapped Against Platform
The daily commute for people at Stirling station, Perth this morning was a little different to the norm!
There are some fantastic images showing how commuters worked together to free a man whose leg was trapped between the train and the platform.
The man in question was boarding the train around 8:50 a.m when his left leg became stuck, according to a Transperth spokesman.
Passengers were told to exit the train and about 50 passengers lined up beside the carriage and pushed which thankfully, freed the man's leg.
“We were able to move the train quite a bit,” a passenger named Nic told the West Australian. “The train moved 5-10cm on its suspension, which was enough to free his leg.”
Paramedics came to the station but the man did not require hospital treatment.
