New Delhi, May 23: A 21-year-old man had a narrow escape while he was crossing the track at Shastri Nagar Metro Station in Delhi as the train moved to leave the station. The alertness of the driver and his swiftness in applying the brakes at the right time saved the man’s life.

In the video, shared by news agency ANI, Mayur Patel can be seen crossing the track to reach the other platform. He continues to walk, completely ignoring the train on a halt at the other platform where Patel apparently wanted to go. Just as he was about to clamber on to the platform, the train began to move, bumping into Patel. The video shows him losing his balance and walking further away, probably to try getting onto the platform again. Luckily for him, the train stopped and he didn’t suffer any injuries in the incident. Meanwhile, the DMRC has imposed a fine of Rs 150 on him, reports said.

During questioning, Patel claimed that he did not know how to get to the other platform so he crossed the track.
