Tragic Turn of Events
In a fateful misstep, the teenager trips and falls off the platform right as an electric train approaches the station.

Friends to the Rescue
Swift action from his friends at Kuryanovo station saved the teenager’s life. They promptly pulled him away from the train, onto the platform, and rushed him into the station where they sought immediate medical assistance.
