A 52-year-old man escaped a gruesome fate this afternoon after jumping off a moving train at a railway station in Maharashtra.
Dilip Bhikan Mandge was saved from being crushed under the wheels of train by alert security officers in Kalyan.
CCTV footage showed two officers dragging Mr Mandge to prevent him from slipping onto the tracks as he is pulled by the moving train.
Dilip Mandge had to board the UP-bound Kamyani Express from Maharashtra's Kalyan today along with his son. The two were travelling to Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh.
However, they boarded the Bihar-bound Pawan Express by mistake. By the time the two realised their mistake, the train had already started leaving the platform.
The CCTV captured Mr Mandge and his son jumping out of the train along with their luggage. While his son managed to land on the platform safely, Mr Mandge, who held on to the side bar on the train door, seemingly lost control and was dragged on by the train.
Maharashtra Security Force staffer Somnath Mahajan and Sub Inspector Protection Force (SIPF) officer K Sahu, who were present at the spot, immediately rushed to help.
Mr Mandge received minor injuries and is stable, officials said, adding, that he refused any medical assistance and thanked the Railway Police Force for their timely intervention and help.
