Child rescued after falling in gap between train and platform

A child was rescued after he fell in the gap between the train and the platform when exiting the car.

The frightened boy reportedly found himself on the tracks after stepping out of the train at Kunming South railway station, in south-western China, on 11 December.

Footage recorded by terrified passengers shows his parents and station security staff reaching down under the train car to pick him up as he raises his arms.

After finally setting foot on the platform, the boy’s parents hugged him tightly as the crowd slowly cleared off.

He was not injured and left the station with his parents following the incident.
