Tap "ChinaWire" !


Just a couple of months after bystanders in China flipped a car over to free a man trapped under it, another incident of people coming together to help somebody in a sticky situation has come to light. 

At Beijing's Dongzhimen station yesterday, commuters literally pushed a train to help a man stuck between the train and the platform. The incident took place last evening after the staff members' initial attempts to free the man failed, according to Channel News Asia.

A video shows the commuters pushing the train to free the trapped passengers, and breaking into applause when they succeed. Watch it below:

Beijing Subway says that the unidentified man was on the railway tracks at around 8 pm, causing the driver to hit the emergency brakes. The man, however, still managed to get a leg stuck between the train and the platform as it rolled in, reports Channel News Asia.

The video has been viewed over 11 million times on China's social media sites.
