An elderly man was rescued by a cop from falling under the wheels of a train leaving a station in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

The horrifying video shows the cop running towards the man.

In a second frame, the man is seen clinging onto the train window in a bid to save himself from falling under the wheels of the train, but his grip gives way and he falls on the platform but part of his body hanging over the edge of the platform. The cop trying to get a hold of the man manages to pull him to safety.

The elderly person then gets up and has water.

Indian Railway Minister Piyush Goyal shared video on Twitter.

He said, “At the Sawai Madhopur station in Rajasthan, an elderly passenger was rescued from the grip of the train by quick action by the security personnel on duty. We are proud of our security personnel who are discharging their duties with full service.”

Netizens have praised the cop for saving the life of the elderly person.

A twitter user wrote, “Sir, Kindly organise a programme and appreciate all such acts of Police and other officials by an award recognising their services. It will inspire others to emulate. Pls also organise training programmes using such officers as resource personnel.”

Kartik Thakor wrote, “I think Rail Ministry should appreciate this kind of officer with some goods or award which will help promote positive behavior in police department and every railway station will be more secure.”
