The incident took place during the morning hour on January 16, in Mumbai’s Goregaon railway station.
The pigeon was reportedly stuck in a kite thread.
According to India Times, one of the passengers in the train informed the station master about the trapped pigeon.
He then alerted the fire brigade and other authorities.
Following that, the power supply was temporarily stopped for 5 minutes, enough to release the bird from the trap.
It just takes little efforts like these to make the world a better and safer place for everyone to live in.
