Teamwork makes the dream work, people!
But we don’t have to tell these Australian commuters that! Around 50 people gathered on a train platform to try and rescue a man whose left leg became lodged as he was boarding for his trip to Perth!
Gotta mind that gap, dude!
Unable to free himself, passengers onboard were first asked to move to one side of the train to try and transfer the weight of the carriage to the opposite side. But that plan failed.
Then, everyone was asked to step off the train and try something pretty incredible…
Pushing the train off of him!
As you’ll see in this AH-Mazing video (below), dozens of people pushed up against the train until the man was given enough room to lift his leg out of the space!
One man involved explained the scene, saying:
"We were able to move the train quite a bit. The train moved 5-10cm on its suspension, which was enough to free his leg.”
The unidentified man was treated by paramedics but he sustained no serious injuries and didn’t need to be transported to the hospital.
All of these Aussies can take a lot of pride in how they came together to save a fellow citizen. You’ve all earned yourselves a Foster’s, that’s for sure!
Watch the fall and the incredible rescue effort in the video (below)!
