Mumbai: In an exemplary show  of courage on Sunday, a 24-year-old IT student Morris Fernandes saved the life of a man who fell into the gap between the platform and the footboard of a Churchgate-bound local train at Vasai Road station.

The victim Debashis Sethi hails from Cuttack, Odisha and works as a construction labourer in Mumbai.

He fell into the gap while boarding the train. His left leg was crushed under the train, as were a few toes of his right leg too.

Fernandes, who is an IT student at G G College,Vasai saw Sethi  fall into the gap.

He rushed to the railway authorities and requested them to arrange a stretcher and got Sethi  admitted to a private orthopaedic hospital in Vasai.

Fernandes told a local daily,  he  had to wait a full  20 minutes for a stretcher at the railway station, as he was told there was shortage of porters who lift victims of train accidents since it was a Sunday.

Due to delay in treatment Sethi  suffered severe loss of blood, and his foot could in no way be reattached.
