A people-powered rescue: Commuters push train to save trapped man

Perth, Australia  –  Transportation officials in Australia are calling it “people power”.

Dozens of Australians rallied together to push a train off a man who was trapped when he slipped and got his leg caught between the train and the platform at a station in Perth.

That’s when dozens of commuters and railway staff rocked the train carriage together and the man was lifted out.

Officials say he was checked over by paramedics before he boarded the next train.

The man’s identity remains a mystery.
