He sprinted on the track, lifting a child onto the platform mere seconds before a train pulled in. A railway worker in Mumbai, India has been hailed as a superhero on social media after he saved a six-year-old boy s life on April 17. In closed-circuit television footage that went viral, the child was seen leading his visually impaired mum as they walked on the train platform.
