Passengers trying to save the elderly woman [Shanghai Daily]


A group of passengers at a Metro station in the south China city of Guangzhou joined forces to push a subway train to save an elderly woman whose leg became stuck between the carriage and the platform.

The incident happened at 2:54pm on May 6 in Ouzhuang Station on Metro Line 6.

The 72-year-old woman's right leg was caught in the gap while getting off the train.

Many passengers immediately rushed to help, with some commuters teaming up to push the carriage away from the platform while others got off to reduce the weight inside. Subway staff also joined in the effort and even poured lubricant onto her leg to help rescue her.

The woman was finally freed after five minutes with only slight scratches on her right knee.

Chinese netizens were greatly touched after watching the video online. One commented: "Good job! Life is full of positive energy."
