Video: Railroad worker saves child from oncoming train

CNN

    

(CNN) — Hair-raising footage released Monday shows the moment an Indian railroad employee rushed to save the life of a child who had fallen onto the tracks.

The CCTV video, posted to Twitter by India’s Ministry of Railways, showed a station worker at Vangani Station in Mumbai sprinting to rescue a child as an oncoming train sped towards them.

The worker lifted the child onto the platform moments before the train would have hit.

The ministry praised the employee, pointsman Mayur Shelkhe, as a “good samaritan.”

“We salute his exemplary courage & utmost devotion to the duty,” they added in the tweet.

Indian Railways is the world’s fourth-largest rail operator and India’s biggest employer.

On March 25 2020, the rail network was suspended for the first time in 167 years when Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed a nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The following month, the railway operator announced plans to convert as many as 20,000 old train carriages into isolation wards for patients as the virus spread.

India is currently dealing with a worsening second wave of coronavirus. On Sunday, the country reported 261,500 new cases — its highest single-day figure so far, according to data from the Indian Ministry of Health.
