A 30-year-old commuter escaped death while he was trying to board a moving train at Parel railway station on Wednesday morning. He was saved by two railway protection force (RPF) constables.

The incident occurred at 8.50am on platform 3 where the fast train had stopped.

As per officials, he was carrying a packet of dosa and chutney with him for his children. The packet tore and chutney spilled on the platform, which caused the slip.

The entire event was captured on CCTV camera and was sent by the RPF to various groups to highlight the dangers of boarding a running train.
