Roughly 40 Japanese commuters teamed up to save a woman who became trapped under a train on Monday morning. During the busy Tokyo rush hour bustle, the unidentified women fell between the 20cm gap between the train and platform, effectively becoming imprisoned in the area between the train and the tracks.

When train officials made a public announcement asking for help, dozens of commuters volunteered to tilt the 32-ton  train car. The train’s suspension made it possible for the rescuers to widen the gap and allow the woman to be pulled to safely.

Miraculously, the middle-aged woman suffered no major injuries and the train was able to continue on its path with only an 8-minute delay.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it
