If people work together they can accomplish anything, even pushing over trains. This morning the worst nightmare for a train passenger become true. A man somehow manage to get his leg stuck between train and platform when he was boarding the train. He was stuck. A passenger immediately informed an official and they made sure the train does not leave.

Then the staff organized all passengers to push against the train together to get the man's leg out of the gap. It worked! According to ABC News Australia, the man was not suffering substantial injuries. The security video published by ABC News shows the amazing rescue at the Perth station.


The weight of a single train car is around 50 tons (depending on train model). As the video shows it not only required lots of people but also timing the pushing was essential to tilt the train a couple inches to free the man.
