The man can be seen rushing to board the moving train on the platform in CCTV footage that was taken from the station's premises. But as the train picked up speed, he staggered, lost his footing, and nearly fell in the space between the train and the platform. With the assistance of other passengers who were waiting at the station, the RPF who were on the scene hurried to save him and pulled him onto the platform for safety while the train carried on.
The event is a moving reminder of the courage and commitment shown by our front-line soldiers. Along with a lot of views, the video has also garnered tons of comments and likes.
