Setting an example of alertness while on duty, Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel saved a person who had slipped while attempting to board a moving train at Coimbatore railway station on Saturday.

The incident was captured on camera and later news agency ANI shared it on Twitter.

In the video, a man runs towards a moving train and loses his balance. Thankfully, an RPF personnel - standing merely five feet away from the train - swings into action and pushes the man inside the coach. 

The awareness of the RPF personnel was highly applauded by netizens. Had the RPF personnel not been present at the station, the man could have sustained grave injuries or even lost his life after being crushed in the gap between the train and the platform.
