| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

Commuters in Australia worked together to lift a train off a man’s trapped leg on Wednesday morning.

Video footage on a Perth platform around 8:50 a.m. showed dozens of commuters working together to help the man after he slipped and trapped his leg between the train and the platform.

At first travelers waited for train officials to help, but eventually they decided to take matter into their own hands.

As more and more travelers push on the train, it slowly tilts. They release and give one more great big push and officials are able to pull the man free.
