Passengers Join Forces to Rescue Elderly Woman Trapped Between Train and Platform in China

This is the heart-stopping moment a group of commuters teamed up to save an elderly woman whose leg fell through a gap between the train and station platform in Guangzhou Metro on Saturday.

Footage from the scene shows more than a dozen good Samaritans and rail workers combining their strength to push the passenger car to the side, giving the woman a chance to slide her right leg out.

The train reportedly weighs a total of 100 tons.

The elderly woman made it out of the shocking incident without any serious injuries, according to Shanghaiist.

A similar incident occurred in Australia at Perth’s Stirling station in 2014, when commuters and staff pushed to tilt a train that was trapping a man’s leg between a passenger car and platform, ABC News reported.

The man also made it out of the incident alive without sustaining any serious injuries.
