Madrid Metro: Woman Rescued From Track

CCTV has been released showing how an off-duty police officer rescued a woman who fainted and fell onto the rails at a Madrid underground station.

The unnamed 38-year-old policeman heard the impact of the body hitting the rails and immediately sprung into action.

An incoming train managed to stop before reaching the platform because the driver realised there was problem when people waved signalling him to stop.

The woman, aged 52, was immediately attended to by a doctor who was at the station.

The accident happened on Monday afternoon at the Marques de Vadilla station in the Spanish capital.
