TOKYO - Passengers Help Free Woman Trapped Between Train & Platform 

TOKYO (AP) — Dozens of Japanese train passengers gave the term “pushy passenger” a new meaning when they pushed a 32-ton train carriage away from the platform to free a woman who had fallen into the 8-inch gap between the train and platform during the busy morning rush hour Monday.
The act of heroism was captured by a newspaper photographer, whose photo of the rescue ran in the Yomiuri daily’s evening edition.
About 40 people helped the staff who were pushing the car upon hearing an announcement that a passenger had been trapped.
A Yomiuri Shimbun photographer who happened to be at JR Minami-Urawa station, just north of Tokyo, said there was applause when the woman in her mid-30s, who fell to her waist, was safely rescued without any serious injuries.
After just an eight-minute delay, the train went on its way.

Amazingly powerful imagery and story.
