Commuters Push Train Off Trapped Man's Leg

By Gary Cutlack on at

A silly Australian train traveller failed to mind the clearly advertised gap, getting his leg stuck between train and platform. Incredible, life-affirming scenes then unfolded, as most of the people on the platform heaved the train up on its suspension and away from the edge enough for him to escape.

If it happened in the UK, people would stand around taking photos to put on Twitter, hoping his leg got chopped all the way off for extra RTs. Right? [Perth Now via Independent]
