Alert RPF personnel managed to save the life of a man who slipped while trying to board a moving train at the Ahmedabad railway station. On Tuesday, the Ministry of Railways shared a video on Twitter which shows an unnamed man trying to board the Ashram Express train which had already started moving. The shocking video shows the man losing his balance and almost falling off the train as it gains speed.
Fortunately, just as he was about to fall in the gap between the platform and the train, alert personnel of the Railway Protection Force (RPF) spotted him. The video shows two staff members of the RPF rushing to save the man. They managed to push him back into the compartment of the moving train, saving him from serious injuries.
“HOWEVER FIT AND SMART YOU ARE, PL. DONT TRY TO ENTRAIN/DETRAIN A MOVING TRAIN,” warned the Ministry of Railways while sharing the video.
