In a remarkable incident that occurred in Navi Mumbai, a group of local train commuters came together to help a man stuck under the wheels of a train. They pushed the vehicle so the man could escape from under it. According to NDTV, the incident took place at Vashi station on Wednesday afternoon and a video was shared by one of the commuters on Reddit’s r/navimumbai subreddit.
News18 reported that it was a case of track trespassing, as per railway officials. The man in question was crossing the tracks as the Panvel-bound train was approaching. The train had to apply emergency brakes, halting just in time to avert the disaster.
However, the man was trapped beneath the train and the locals in the station sprung into action. Together, they pushed the massive vehicle so that the man could get out. The man is now safe.
“When I recorded this, people were just pushing randomly. Later, everybody collaborated and pushed at the same time and it worked,” the user who posted this wrote on Reddit.
