An RPF jawan was seen saving a pregnant woman and a child's life at Dadar station in Mumbai on video surfacing on social media. In the video, a pregnant woman and child were seen falling on the platform from a running train. The pregnant woman was trying to get into the Danapur express train along with her child but the train was moving and therefore, she missed a step and fell down. As soon as this happened, an RPF staff was seen immediately rushing towards the woman and ultimately saved her life.
There have been several similar cases in the past where RPF personnel have shown bravery and saved many lives in several railway stations in Mumbai and other parts of the country.
A similar incident had taken place in February this year when a 32-year-old man who tried to end his life by lying down a railway track in Virar station in Palghar was saved by an alert RPF jawan. In the video, the man was seen lying on the tracks after spreading a bedsheet as a suburban local approached the spot, then the RPF jawan was seen jumping and pulling the man away to save his life.
