In Australia, passengers tilt a train to free a co-passenger's leg stuck in station gap
There is a power in unity. Same example has been set by Australian train commuters in Perth when they managed to take out a person whose leg was stuck between the platform and train.

The commuters joined hands together and tilted the train and the passenger was out of danger the next moment. The incident happened in Perth, Australia.

Workers spent about ten minutes trying to free him, but his leg was stuck in a very critical manner and just wouldn't budge. Afterwards passengers started pushing the train.

There were more than 50 people who pushed the train together and tilted it until the man was able to free his leg and board the train again.

His leg was saved after the successful bid to tilt the 10,000-tonne train which was squeezing his limb. Fortunately, the man did not appear to suffer from any serious injuries.

A few minutes later everything went back to normal and the train was on its way. And despite all of that, the train was only delayed 15 minutes.
