MADRID -- Security cameras captured a harrowing moment at a subway station in Spain when a 51-year-old woman fainted and fell onto the tracks.
Fellow passengers standing on the platform motioned to the driver of an approaching train to stop and an off-duty police officer ran along the tracks and dragged the unconscious woman across to the opposite side, video released by police Tuesday shows.
An off-duty doctor also happened to be in the station and revived the woman once she was hoisted onto the opposite platform. She was later treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
The incident, which lasted less than a minute, took place just before 2 p.m. local time Monday, inside Madrid's Marqués de Vadillo metro station.
