(Newser) – A guy who fell into the gap between a train and the platform during this morning's rush hour in Perth, Australia, was rescued by none other than his fellow commuters, reports ABC News Australia. Video footage shows the passengers working in tandem to shove the train off him, then cheering once he was able to pull his leg out. The man didn't go to the hospital. "Everyone sort of pitched in," says a Transperth spokesman, who praised the "people power."
