PERTH, Australia - An Australian story has gone international after video was released showing a crowd of commuters using people power to help free a man trapped between a train and its platform in Perth, Australia.
As The ABC News - Australia reports, this week when a man became trapped on the platform, scores of passengers and staff at the Stirling station managed to tilt the carriage so the man could free his leg.
The man had reportedly tried to take a position on the train but got stuck in the doorway, and one leg slipped, causing him to get stuck in the gap between the train and platform.
The best news of all is the man was saved from serious injury thanks to the quick response. He didn't even need to be taken to the hospital after being checked out by medics.
And the video showing the crowd's response could certainly give you chills. It's amazing to see so many strangers coming together to help someone they don't even know.
