The incident was captured on camera and was later shared by news agency ANI on its Twitter handle.

In the video, the man is seen running towards a moving train and boarding it, but he immediately loses his grip of the side handle on doors and slips.

The 8-second clip has gone viral and has been viewed over 82,000 times since being posted. People on Twitter took to the comment section to shower praises and applaud the RPF personnel for his quick thinking.

Netizens also said that the RPF personnel should be felicitated with a medal for the timely action. Here's how people reacted to the video:
