New Delhi:

A constable at a railway station near Mumbai saved a pregnant woman from falling into the gap between the train and the platform on Monday, CCTV footage showed. The incident took place when the woman, in an attempt to deboard a moving train at the Kalyan Railway Station, fell and almost slipped into the gap.

21-year-old Vandana, travelling with her husband Chandresh and their child, were supposed to board a train to Gorakhpur from Kalyan. However, they boarded a different train. By the time they realised this, the train had already begun moving. As Vandana, who is eight months pregnant, attempts to get off the train, she stumbles, unable to balance herself. Right then, Railway Protection Force Constable SR Khandekar jumps in to save her.

The woman, unhurt, later boarded the train to Gorakhpur with her family.

Shivaji Sutar, Chief Public Relations Officer of Central Railway in Mumbai, tweeted the CCTV footage and appealed to passengers to not board or deboard a running train.
