New Delhi:

As a train pulls out of the Delhi cantonment area, a man, with luggage in both hands, loses balance while trying to board the train. He slips and falls into the gap, but is saved by an alert railway constable.

The unidentified man places his first bag onto the moving train, grips the long steel door handle and tries to climb onto the train, loses his footing and slips down. A fellow passenger, standing right behind him, drops his handbags and scrambles to save the man. Railway Protection Force constable Rajvir Singh, who is a short distance away, sprints to rescue the man.

Mr Singh tries to pull the man away, trips and takes a tumble. The man, holding on to the door handle, is dragged away by the moving train. Back on his feet in no time, the constable again makes a dash for the man, and pulls him away to safety.

The RPF tweeted a video of the rescue act lauding the constable with #HeroesInUniform.

At this point a few other passengers are also seen running towards them while the train continues to be on the move.
