A constable by the name of Vinita Kumari is being widely appreciated on the internet after a video of her saving a passenger from being crushed under a moving train was shared online.
In the video, which has been shared by the official Twitter handle of Ministry Of Railways shows a woman trying to board a train with her heavy luggage at the Lucknow Railway station. However, while trying to board, she slips and almost falls in the platform gap. This is when the alert constable runs to her, grabs her and drags her to safety.

Kudos to the lady constable for her alertness and quick reflex. The young girl has to thank her lucky stars that her Guardian Angel was at arm's length to pull her out of a certain crushing fate.— Meera Menon (@MeeraMe11267744) February 24, 2021
