An Army man miraculously survived a serious mishap recently at Itarsi Railway station in Jhansi. 

He fell on the track after accidentally slipping into the gap between the train and the platform. 

After the running train was stopped, fellow passengers and Railways staff pulled him out alive, with only a few scratches.

 

The man was travelling in the Madurai-Dehradun Express, which made an unscheduled stop at Itarsi. He got down to fill water and then saw the train moving. 

As he rushed to get into the moving train, he slipped and fell.

At least two coaches had passed with him lying dangerously close to the wheels before the train could be stopped. 

The unidentified soldier crouched and pressed himself against the wall and survived the ordeal successfully.
