Bhubaneswar:  A Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel at Bhubaneswar railway station on Wednesday  May 11 acted fast to save a deboarding woman from getting stuck in the gap between the train and the platform as the train began to pull out, which could have proved fatal for her, officials said.

The incident took place when the woman tried to get off the moving train and, in the process, slipped and nearly got stuck in the gap. CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral.

“RPF head constable S. Munda has saved the life of the woman passenger, who slipped while deboarding from Palasa-Cuttack passenger train at platform No.3 of the Bhubaneswar railway station,” railway officials said.

The train reached platform No. 3 of Bhubaneswar railway station at around 10.05 a.m. and started moving from the platform after a halt of five minutes, Munda said, adding that the woman passenger only sought to get off as the train began moving.

“I saw that the woman passenger slipped and nearly got stuck in the gap between the train and platformA. At that very moment, I pulled out the woman along with another woman co-passenger (who was also looking to de-board from the train), to the platform and saved her from the jaws of death,” he said.
