Drunk man rescued off the tracks moments before a train arrives

Footage released by a public rail company in Australia captured a rescue that is the literal definition of “last-second.”

Released by Transport for NXW, the security camera footage shows a man leaping to the aid of an injured pedestrian who had fallen on the train track, pulling him to safety moments before he would’ve been struck by an oncoming train.

The footage was taken at the Berala train station in Sydney, New South Wales on Saturday, according to Transport for NXW.

The near-collision was captured on multiple cameras as an elderly commuter with grey hair appears to lose his footing, taking a hard fall onto the tracks below. He’s then spotted by another commuter, who urgently attempts to pull him to safety.

Another camera, positioned on the front of an oncoming train, shows the reason for his urgency: the train is entering the station, just metres from the man at the time of his fall.

Incredibly, the bystander is able to pull the man to safety right as the train arrives in the station, missing him by inches.
