Commuters Rally To Push Train Off Trapped Man

train-tilt.jpg

"Come on, put your backs into it!" -- guy in blue hat not helping.

This is a short video from a train station in Perth, Australia, in which commuters rally to tilt a train car enough to free a man who is not very good at boarding trains (you can see him get stuck at the very beginning of the video). Way to help your fellow man! Unfortunately, due to all the tilting, the train car was left sitting uneven and jumped the tracks immediately after leaving the station, injuring everyone aboard. Fine, I'm lying -- that would have been a solid plot twist though.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to PYY, who agrees somebody needs to go back to train boarding school. And to Evan, who could have lifted the train himself because he works out.

    someone is getting hurt and could be torn into pieces any second and its funny to you? that you had to publish an article to make fun of him?

    why dont you get hit by a train and let us have a good laugh you fuckin asshole

  • steve holt

    you have a point, Joseph. It would be funnier if you were stuck.

  • McDee

    Hope your day gets better!

  • joe, you mofo troll-the article makes not fun of him

  • Bill Mead

    I'm not trying to be the bitter "that would never happen in America," guy, but would that ever happen in America?

  • archer9234

    It would be really hard to be done in NYC, for example. A ton of people would have to get out of the car first. Then that line is gonna be shut down for hours. While it has to be put back on.

  • the antagonist

    Not because Americans wouldn't be willing to help, but because everyone would be too afraid of getting sued.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Is that a joke about how they are too fat to get in the gap?

  • ZerglingPack

    I was thinking he meant because we have like five trains in the entire country.

  • Joe Ferschke

    I think he meant because Americans typically stand by and watch or ignore when things like this happen.

  • stephanie eylar

    typically in movies maybe, I never have seen people just stand by when someone gets hurt.

  • Kevin

    so embarrassing...I hope he isn't a regular commuter. He will be forever remembered as that dude who got stuck.

  • MustacheHam

    ....and brought folks together for a good cause.

    So....they can continue the train. XD

  • Emmitt Morgans

    You're implying that they ran the train on him?

  • very inspirational- the power of togetherness
