An Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel saved the life of a passenger who slipped while trying to board a train at the Bhubaneswar railway station on Saturday. Nibedita Sahoo, a college teacher, was attempting to board the moving train at about 5.32 pm along with her brother Chandramani Sahoo when the mishap occurred. Sahoo was trying to board the Puri-Sambalpur Intercity Express at Platform No. 1 when she tripped and was about to slip into the gap between the running train and the platform. Reacting within a fraction of second, RPF constable Subrat Kumar Maharana, who was deputed on the platform, ran and pulled Ms Sahoo out of the gap.
Later, in a written letter to the RPF authorities, Sahoo expressed her gratitude to Maharana for saving her life. "It is my pleasure to express gratitude to Maharana for saving my life," Ms Sahoo said. The entire incident was caught on CCTV cameras.
