Vasai: RPF personnel saves a 71-year old woman who was trying to board a moving train

On Saturday, September 18, a woman was rescued by Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel as she slipped into the gap between the platform and the moving train.

The 71-year old woman was trying to board the train at around 5.30 PM. The woman was travelling from Bhavnagar to Hyderabad with her husband. She had sat down with her husband to drink tea. Then they saw the train moving further, following which they started running towards the train. In the process, the woman slipped and fell between the platform gap and the running train at Vasai road railway station. 

The Commissioner of Police in Mumbai, Quaiser Khalid, shared the video on his Twitter account and reminded the passengers that reckless travelling could be fatal. He further added that the Railway Protection Force (RPF) would be awarded for their bravery.

In the video, one can witness that an alert constable rushed to help the woman. Few passengers who were on the platform, too, rushed to help the woman.

A similar incident occurred last week, wherein a woman was standing in the middle of the railway track, and a fast local was approaching here. An alert policeman saved her at the Vasai road railway junction.

A few months ago, a video went viral, posted by Central Railway's DRM (Divisional Regional Manager) in Mumbai. In the video, the child was seen losing his balance and was falling onto the track with a speeding train ahead. The Railwayman, Mayur Shelke, later saved him. The Union Minister of Railways also appreciated him.
