'People Power' Saves Man Trapped Between Train and Station

Dozens rally together to push a train off a man who had become trapped.
Transportation officials in Australia are calling it "people power."
Dozens of Australians rallied together to push a train off a man who was trapped. The man was boarding in the western Australian city of Perth Wednesday morning when he slipped. His leg became jammed between the carriage and the station. That's when dozens of commuters and railway staff rocked the train carriage together and the man was lifted out.
Officials say he was checked over by paramedics before he boarded the next train.
His identity is still a mystery - but this incident is now world famous.
