Australian commuters help free man trapped against platform

Commuters in Western Australia have helped to free a man after his leg became trapped between a platform and a busy train.

CCTV footage captured at the station in Perth shows the man slip and fall as he tries to board the carriage.

His fellow passengers, along with transport staff, then tilt the train so he can pull himself free.

The BBC's Adnan Nawaz spoke to David Hynes, a spokesman for TransPerth, about the dramatic rescue.
