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.
