Melbourne police save woman from train with seconds to spare

The footage shows the woman walking across the tracks on Tuesday and attempting to climb up to the platform.

Melbourne police have been praised for saving a woman from an oncoming train - with just two seconds to spare.

"She's very lucky to be alive because if we had not been in the spot that we were in, it would have been a very bad outcome on the day."

Three police officers rush to help her - and manage to pull her up only seconds before a train comes rushing into the station.

The train driver hits the brakes, but could not have stopped in time.

The Protective Service Officers said they saw a train bearing down on her and sprinted from the other end of the station. She appeared to be drunk and unaware of the approaching train.

Constable Steven Goldman said the "incredibly dangerous" practice is surprisingly common and often commuters don't realise how risky crossing the tracks is.

The woman has been charged for entering the railway tracks, which are restricted areas.

Victoria Police has not released the location and date of the rescue to protect the woman's identity.
