A split second from death: Hero policeman pulls elderly woman off train tracks JUST before train speeds past platform in India
CCCTV footage shows the split second an Indian policeman pulls a woman from the brink of death as a train hurtles towards her in Uttar Pradesh.
The elderly woman was in the direct path of the train and likely would have been killed had the Railway Police Force offi al in Lalitpur train station not come to her rescue on Saturday.
Head constable Kamlesh Kumar Dubey, who can see the train approaching, frantically waves his hand to warn the woman ag inst crossing the railway track.
But Ramsakhi Tiwari, a 65-year-old woman from the village Padaria in the north of India, crosses anyway.
Dubey grabs the woman and quickly pulls her up just in time as the express shoots past them.
杜貝抓住那個女人，迅速把她拉了上來，Sampark Kranti 快列剛好從他們身邊駛過。
Passengers at the scene saluted the efforts of the officer after seeing the miraculous rescue of Tiwari.
According to local media, the elderly woman did not listen to the warnings of the railway police personnel and tried crossing the railway track despite knowing the train was about to pass.
'An elderly woman crossing the track at Lalitpur station of Jhansi division was saved by the railway security personnel posted there by playing on her life,' said the Ministry of Railways in a statement.
'All are requested to use Foot Over Bridge to go from one platform to another.'
Viewers took to social media to praise the policeman, but other said the woman should have known better.

HE did not take the time to carry out a risk assessment of the danger. He saved her life, heroic man. We in the EU and the US dont have policemen like this anymore. Time for a rethink.

That woman must be either deaf or demented. She risked not only her life but a hard working civil servant's life.

There's a moral to the story: Barefoot policemen are more alert and productive.

In the UK he'd have spent 20 minutes filling in a risk assessment form before doing anything.
