Mind the gap! Lucky escape for passenger

Rescue: Officer hauls man to safety

A HERO railway policeman was filmed saving a passenger who was seconds away from being crushed by a moving train in India.

Dilip Mangde, 52, tried to get off the Pawan express in Mahrashtra when he realised it was not his train, but got caught in the door.

Footage shows him being dragged by the accelerating train and moments from slipping under it when he was rescued.

The officer was filmed launching himself towards the helpless man and pulling him away from the carriage on Tuesday. Mr Mangde escaped with minor injuries.
