A 52-year-old woman slipped while trying to board a running train at Borivli station and got stuck between the platform’s railing and the track on Sunday at 5.54 pm, said a senior railway officer.

The woman, Ramleela Ben, survived as the loco pilot applied the brakes after onlookers raised an alarm.

Ravindra Bhakar, chief public relations officer, Western Railway, said Ben sustained minor injuries on her head. She is currently recuperating at the Dr B R Ambedkar Hospital in Mumbai Central.

Ben was attempting to get into the second class compartment of the 19017/Saurashtra Janta Express, which runs between Mumbai and Jamnagar, said the officer.

“After the train stopped, the Railway Protection Force rescued her with the help of the guard and other passengers. She was given first aid at the station and then referred to the hospital,” said Ravindra Bhakar, chief public relations officer, Western Railway.
