PERTH TRAIN ACCIDENT

From the AP:

A passenger alerted railway staff who stopped the train from leaving, local media said. When railway workers realized the man couldn’t move, they called on other passengers to help.

The footage showed dozens of people rushing to help tilt the car to free the man, who fell at least thigh deep into the platform gap.

“It’s really heartwarming I think, to find an incident like this where everyone pitched in,” transport authority spokesman David Hynes said.

The man wasn’t named, but local media reported that he was believed to have escaped injury and caught the next train.
