1. Heroic commuters pushed a 32-ton train car to save a woman trapped between the train and the platform in Tokyo.
A woman in her 30s slipped and fell into the 20-centimeter gap between the train and the platform during Monday’s rush hour in Saitama near Tokyo.
After a public announcement about the trapped woman, around 40 passengers helped the railway staff push the 32-ton train car to rescue her. The amazing act was captured by a local news photographer.
The woman was pulled out uninjured to collective cheers, and eight minutes later the train took off.
Hurrah for humanity!
