A heroic moment and some quick thinking on the part of a Railway Police Force constable, identified as Anil Kumar, was captured on CCTV footage from December 3 at Thane Railway Station, Mumbai.

A man was seen crossing the railway tracks just as a train was coming into the station. Kumar leapt down on the tracks at once, helping the man to climb on to the platform, and then jumping out of the way of the train just in time.
