Dozens of good Samaritans in Moscow came to the rescue of a 70-year-old woman who got her leg wedged between a train and a subway platform.

The woman got trapped as the train pulled into a station in the Russian capital,reports Life News.

When her fellow passengers spotted her struggling to get free, they stepped in to help by rocking the subway train back and forth.

The video, posted on YouTube, shows the Russian commuters shouting in unison and pushing the train for around 15 seconds before the woman can be freed.

A similar incident happened last year in Perth, Australia, after a man fell between the platform and train carriages. That man was also freed, according to ABC Australia.
