Transport spokesman David Hynes told the ABC: "He stood in the doorway and as he was sort of taking up his position there, one leg slipped outside the door, slipped outside the gap, and he was stuck.

"We alerted the driver, made sure the train didn't move."

Hynes said the train staff got the passengers off the train "and organised them to sort of rock, tilt the train backwards away from the platform, so they were able to get him out and rescue him."
