Japanese train passengers help to free woman

  • Dozens of train passengers in Japan helped to free a woman stuck into the gap between the train and platform by pushing a 32-ton train carrier. This happened during the busy Monday morning , as reported by The Huffington Post. 

    A newspaper photographer captured this scene and the photograph ran in the Japan's largest daily, Yomiuri newspaper. 

    The public announcement about the woman being stuck attracted about 40 people to push the carriage forcing it to lean to either side and the woman, who is in her 30s was rescued without being injured. There was only an eight-minute delay and the train resumed its journey soon after the incident.
