Police seek passenger who risked his life to save man who fell onto Tube tracks

Police are desperately trying to trace a Good Samaritan who leaped onto the train tracks at Tottenham Court Road Underground station in London on Tuesday, to save a man who was taken ill and fell off the platform.

The 47-year-old man was standing on a northbound Northern Line platform when he suddenly became unwell and fell onto the live tracks.

Pictures show the bystander jumping onto the rails and pulling him safely back onto the platform during the incident which occurred just before 5pm.
