Dramatic metro station rescue caught on camera.
A Spanish man has an off duty policeman to thank after he was saved from the path of an oncoming train.
CCTV footage of how the dramatic events unfolded have been released. The video shows the 41-year-old man falling from the platform at the Puerta del Angel station.
Passengers are then seen to be screaming and waving their arms to try to warn the conductor of a train which was just about to pull into the station.
The 30-year-old police officer scrambled across the tracks and pulled the man to safety. The train narrowly misses both of them.
The off duty police officer only graduated from police academy two months ago.
