Viral Video: Alert RPF Jawan Saves Woman’s Life As She Slips & Falls From Moving Train in Bhubaneswar | Watch
An alert RPF constable saved a life of a woman passenger who fell into a gap between the platform and the train at Bhubaneswar railway station in Odisha on Wednesday.
Bhubaneswar: A Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel’s quick thinking and swift action saved the life of a woman passenger at Bhubaneswar railway station on Wednesday. The incident took place when the woman tried to get off the moving train and, in the process, slipped and nearly got stuck in the gap. The RPF jawan identified as S Munda, rushed towards her and acted fast to save the deboarding woman from getting stuck in the gap between the train and the platform as the train began to pull out, which could have proved fatal for her.
The train reached platform No. 3 of Bhubaneswar railway station at around 10.05 a.m. and started moving from the platform after a halt of five minutes, Munda said, adding that the woman passenger only sought to get off as the train began moving. A CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral.

Hundreds of lives can be saved if every train has an automatic door, which opens only when the train halts … https://t.co/0iauXw85Jh
