In an incredible act of humanity, quick-thinking commuters in Australia banded together to rescue a man who fell between the train and a platform.
A man got his leg stuck while boarding a train in Perth, Australia today – and passengers helped to free him.

Crowds grew, watching. The crowd came in handy, pushing against the side of the train, tilting the train car so the man could free his leg.
People clapped when the man’s leg was freed, and the train was on its way a few minutes later. The man’s injuries aren’t believed to be serious.
