In one of the bravest acts, two Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel risked their lives to save a woman from slipping under a train in Maharashtra's Thane Railway station. The incident occurred on January 9 at around 10:42 am, when a woman slipped and fell down the platform while de-boarding a moving train. News agency ANI shared the video of the hair-raising incident and identified the two brave police officers as Assistant sub-inspector Sattar Sheikh and sub-inspector Nitin Patil.
In the video, a woman in a red saree can be seen de-boarding a moving train before slipping and sliding under the platform. The two vigilant police officers immediately rushed to the woman's rescue as soon as they spot her falling from the train. Assistant sub-inspector Sheikh and sub-inspector Patil, with the help of a civilian, managed to save the woman, averting a major tragedy. The woman in the video appears fine after being rescued by the police officers.
