A schoolgirl has narrowly escaped death after a burqa-clad woman pulled her off the tracks of an oncoming train.

The incident occurred as the girl dropped what appears to be a hula hoop onto the tracks. CCTV shows her attempting to retrieve the toy, then struggling to climb back to safety as a train began to pull into the station.

As the train began to roll towards the child, a woman wearing a purple head-covering, ran over and pulled her from an almost certain death.

No one was injured in the dramatic event.

The footage illustrates the dangers of trespassing onto railways and the video was released in line with a new campaign to keep people safe.

Sydney Trains Chief Executive Howard Collins said in a statement: “Trespassing on the tracks is a major issue.

“Every year around 4,000 people trespass on the tracks for a range of reasons from taking shortcuts to committing graffiti vandalism.

    Is it of news value that she was wearing a Burqa?

      What’s your problem with that? It just says a Burqa-clad woman, so what if she’s in one? The most important thing to note here is that she has saved a life…you could wear one or not, but are you willing to risk your life to save another?

        have you ever heard something like “woman wearing skirt saves a child”, “a man with a glass helps a person wearing a watch”, and so on? Viva Malta is right to complain. it’s pretty obvious that the author is giving a greater importance to the Burqa as he/she put it on the lead.
