A policeman in Madhya Pradesh went beyond his call of duty to save the life of a man who was seriously injured after falling off a train. For about a kilometer and a half, the cop carried the man on his shoulder to a railway station in Hoshangabad.
In a video, the cop is seen rushing to the man's rescue, picking him up and running on a rail track as a train passes by.
No ambulance or help could reach the place where the man had got injured. Seeing no alternative, the cop ran along the rail tracks with the injured man on his shoulders.
