A RPF personnel, Constable Pawan Kumar, saved a man from falling under a moving train and getting crushed, at Mumbai’s Borivalli station.

The video of the constable’s heroic actions was shared by the Ministry of Railways on Twitter. The incident took place when the man lost his balance and fell while boarding the Dadar-Bhuj Special train at the Borivali station.

However, Kumar showed ‘readiness’ and was quick to pull him back and save his life.

The Railways Ministry also warned that passengers should not attempt to board or alight a moving train as it can be fatal.

Several netizens lauded the prompt action taken by the on-duty constable, while some also condemned the passenger’s recklessness.

A similar incident had taken place in March, when a passenger had slipped into the gap between the platform and the train at Goa’s Vasco station. Luckily, a RPF personnel was close-by and dragged the passenger out of harm’s way in the nick of time.
