PERTH, Australia — Dozens of Australians tilted a train on Wednesday to free a commuter whose leg was trapped between a railcar and a platform, with authorities praising their efforts as an example of “people power,” the Rakyat Post reported.

The man was boarding in the Western Australia city of Perth when he slipped and became jammed in the gap between the carriage and the station, operator Transperth said in a statement, according to the report.
