Imagine having a good excuse for why you were late to work! “Yeah, sorry boss. Had to save a man trapped between the track and the train on my way in.” He probably wouldn’t believe you…until the video popped up on YouTube and every major news outlet.
After a man slips at a Perth station, trapping himself between a train and the platform, onlookers band together to help out. The original video has earned 256,000 views over the last three days, but other YouTube channels have cut down the 17 minute clip into a highlight reel of the event which is helping to drive even more views.
For example, ABC News Australia uploaded the video to its channel yesterday and it has already racked up more than one million YouTube views. Check it out!
