Alertness and quick response of two vigilant constables of the Railway Protection Force (RPF) at Kurla helped save the lives of a mother-daughter duo, both of who slipped and were getting pulled in to the gap between the train and the platform, while trying to board a crowded train.
The incident occurred at 5:36 pm on Sunday when people were waiting to board the Panvel-bound train at platform number 7.
While the daughter managed to get into the general ladies compartment, the mother was unable to force her way inside before the train
pulled away. Realising that her mother has not been able to get in to the compartment, the woman then tried to get down from the moving train and in the process, got caught in the gap between the train and the platform.
“The woman was already getting pulled into the gap when the passengers started yelling. Hearing this, I immediately ran and pulled her out,” said constable Pradip Gite, who was patrolling the platform along with head constable Vikas Patil.
The woman’s mother who herself was wearing a saree, was also running behind the moving train to rescue her daughter, slipped and ended up on the platform floor, dangerously close to the moving train. “I noticed that the woman will surely be dragged by the train so I rushed to pull her aside,” said head constable Vikas Patil. The RPF staff could not note down any details of the mother-daughter duo as they soon left to catch another train.
