A 17-year-old girl from Mumbai, India, had a narrow escape when she almost fell off a speeding train.

In the clip shot by a fellow passenger, the girl, Pooja Boshale, is standing close to the edge of the train carriage. Suddenly she slips from the moving train, Metro reports.

Two male passengers grab hold of her and pull her back into the train, before scolding her for being so careless.

The railway police in Mumbai have launched an investigation into the incident that occurred on 1 October between Ghatkopar and Vikhroli stations in Mumbai.

Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, Pooja expressed her gratitude towards the men who saved her life.

“I had just put out my hand. I’m unable to remember what happened after that. But I’m lucky that people travelling in the same compartment reacted in time and not only saved me, but also my phone,” she said.

Once the young woman reached her destination in Diva, she contacted the station manager who arranged for her to be taken to hospital, India Today writes.

Pooja, who injured her hand, says she doesn’t like the video being circulated.

“I don’t know who shot the video and circulated it on social media, but I feel bad about it. It’s not good for me.”
