Dramatic footage: Trainee nurse saves man from ...
A trainee nurse in Australia has been hailed a hero after rescuing a man who fell onto railway tracks at a Brisbane station. Dramatic CCTV footage released by Queensland Rail shows the 56-year-old man stumbling off the platform and onto the line, as the other people on the platform scramble to save him.
Queensland Rail employee Jill Lyten recounted the shocking events, saying, "we were all just yelling 'get off the tracks, get off the tracks.'
"I knew that I had to just get the number and get to control and stop the trains."
Jill's quick-thinking call shut down all the trains on the line, but it was the unnamed trainee nurse who risked her life to help the man to safety, before heading off to college.
Queensland Rail released the CCTV footage of the event to highlight the emergency buttons on station platforms and urge commuter safety. Report by Laurie Blake.
