A video shared by the Ministry of Railways shows how an alert train driver applied emergency brakes in time to save the life of a man lying on the track. The video was filmed at Sewri station on the Harbor Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network. The 50-second clip begins with a man wandering on a railway track. As the train approached, he suddenly lay down on the track.
Within a few seconds, we can see that the train slowed down and then came to a complete halt as the loco pilot applied the emergency brakes. Soon, three Railway Police personnel could be seen running up to the man and escorting him to a safe place. It is clear from the time stamp on the video that the incident happened on January 2 at around 11.45 am.
In the tweet, the Ministry of Railways lauded the “work done by the motorman”, and said, “At Sewri station in Mumbai, the motorman saw a man lying on the track, saved the person’s life by applying the emergency brake. Readiness and understanding With you. Your life is priceless, someone is waiting for you at home.”

Another felt that the name of the motorman should be taken in the tweet. The user wrote, ‘Please name the heroes. They deserve it.”
Then there is no mention of that motorman’s name. Please mention the names of the heroes. They deserve it. Glory is the fragrance of heroic deeds.
