The woman was reportedly trying to retrieve her bag, which had fallen onto the platform


It was an incredibly close call for a woman in Mumbai who fell and nearly slipped under a moving train while trying to pick up her bag, which had fallen onto the platform. A number of commuters and  Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel immediately rushed to help her up and saved her from potentially being run over by the train. 

The woman was trying to board a Panvel-bound train from Mumbai's Kurla Railway Station on Monday when the incident occurred. According to The Times of India, her bag fell onto the platform as she was trying to board the train. To retrieve her bag, the woman jumped off the train, which was already in motion. That's when she lost her balance and nearly slipped through the gap between the train and the platform. But fortunately, passengers waiting on the platform and RPF personnel saved her, preventing a tragedy.
