    Perth, Australia this morning a man got his leg trapped between a train carriage and the platform,
    someone said what we need is a plan,

    lets push the train over,
    so the commuters heaved the carriage up off the mans leg,and he got out,

    super Aussies,

    life is what happens to us while we are making other plans

    All it took was a slight mis-step and down he went. Not sure there's much they can do design wise to eliminate all possible scenarios.

    Any other opinions on that?

    Good to see the crowd push together and in the end it looks like no harm done this time other than a slight delay.

    They need a posh bird going "Maind the Gep" at every station, that's all.

    That would be an interesting thing to try. I only hope that folks would be watching their step and not her booty.

    Lucky they dont move the train until tis all clear.

    great they shifted the train, but what if the pushing and shoving caused it to rock backwards and damage his leg? Not real smart actually.

    I was wondering about that as well. A little movement in the wrong direction could have done a lot of damage with the weight of that coach pinching his leg against the platform. Very lucky guy to have been able to walk away from that one.

    Maybe a wiser alternative would have been to wait for some help from a crew with mechanical equipment that could move the coach with less risk of rocking it.
