A good Samaritan has saved the life of a man leaning dangerously over the side of a platform to vomit by pulling him out of the path of an oncoming train.

Kieran Foley waited at Petersham station, in the southwest of Sydney, when he heard the sound of a train slamming in an attempt to prevent a collision.

A man who broke the tracks was completely unaware of the train while wearing his headphones and could not hear the screeching of the brakes.

& # 39; I walked over to him, I remember I didn't want to run because I didn't want to hit him in front of the train, and I just remembered that I grabbed him by the shoulders and pulled him back, & # 39; Mr. Foley said. 9 news.

& # 39; I am just grateful that I was in the right place at the right time. & # 39;

After the disoriented man was rescued by a few centimeters, he stumbled around before he fell ill again.

He then bent over the other side of the tracks and continued to vomit.

Mr. Foley approached the man and led him away from the tracks before telling him to sit down and rest so that he could come home safely.

The hero said he was lucky that he was not wearing his soundproof headphones at the time of the incident, otherwise he would not have been able to hear the oncoming train.
