In an act of extraordinary courage, a railway pointsman at Vangani railway station near Mumbai saved the life of a six-year-old boy, who fell on a railway track, by hauling him onto a platform just seconds before a speeding train approached the platform.
The CCTV footage of the incident shows railway pointsman Mayur Shelke jumping onto the railway track at platform number 2 to rescue the boy, while a speeding train headed towards them. The train passed the spot where the child had fallen, just two seconds after he and Shelke made it to the platform.
