Mumbai RPF jawan saves toddler, woman, from falling under local train

The incident occurred around 12.04 p.m. on Tuesday when the woman, with her one-year-old child in her arms, was attempting to board a heavily-crowded local train at Mankhurd which was bound for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.

Owing to the overcrowding, the woman lost her balance, slipped and tumbled in the gap between the moving train and the platform, said CR chief spokesperson Shivaji Sutar, sharing a video of the incident.

Noticing this, alert RPF constable Akshay Soye nearby jumped to grab the woman’s baby and some other commuters rushed to pull out the shocked woman onto the platform.

Both the mother and child were in a state of shock but safe and sound, said Sutar, lauding the efforts of constable Soye to save them from potential injury or death.

This year, the CR’s vigilant teams of RPF jawans have helped save around 62 persons in different parts of Maharashtra, many a times risking their own lives, with many CCTV or commuter videos on such incidents going viral on social media or traditional media.

Of these, the maximum – 24 persons – lives were saved in the congested Mumbai Division alone, 14 in Nagpur Division, 12 in Pune Division, 8 in Bhusaval Division and 4 in Solapur Division, said the officials.
