Transcript for Man Gets Stuck Between a Train and Platform
To that video, a man getting stuck between the train and platform just as it was about to pull out of the station. It happened in Australia but what happened next was truly, truly remarkable. It's just before 9:00 in the morning, the crowd anxious to get to work files onto this train. But look closely. One guy's left foot slips between the train and the platform with the train about to take off, the last man on the platform yells for help. The train is stopped but the guy's leg is still stuck. That gap just two inches wide. The train just didn't -- and then someone yelled out saying a guy's leg was caught in the door. Reporter: They tell people inside the train to jump to the other side of the car hoping to sway it away from the platform but it doesn't work. Soon they realize there's only one solution, pure elbow grease. They line up alongside the train and push it with all their might man and woman young and old more than 50 people giving it their all and there it is, rescue accomplished. Well done. Thank you. I got out. Okay, so it was a good result, everyone put in together and got him out. Reporter: The rescued man walk as way, in fact, he catches the next train. Perhaps showing up late to work but with a pretty good story to tell. As Michael reminded me 24rs's a reason they put those signs up that say "Watch the gap." The initial train was only delayed by 15 minutes.
