Hello Mumbai City Desk :
There has always been misconception of people that the Railway Police least bother for a person in trouble at Railway Stations and are mute spectators when accidents occur at stations.
But an alert female constable proved it wrong. Using her presence of mind, she saved the life of a commuter who accidentally fell off a moving local train at Byculla station on Sunday evening.
Sharing the video of the incident on social media, according to Central Railway the 40-year-old woman lost her balance while trying to board a moving local train from platform number one of the Byculla railway station.
The on-duty woman constable, Sapna Golkar, while keeping a close watch on people boarding the train swiftly reacted to the situation and rushed towards the train and saved the commuter who put her life in danger trying to board a moving train.
The 52-second-long CCTV footage, shows others present at the platform rushing to the scene. The woman then sits on the bench initially occupied by the woman constable.
Even as some on social media appreciated the woman constable for saving a life, many stressed the necessity of closed-door coaches in local trains.
A Twitter user wrote “Top class display of alertness and proactiveness shown by the officer,”
“Great presence of mind.”
This is not the first time when passengers have put their lives at risk by trying to board moving trains.
