CCTV footage has captured the moment police in Milan aided a distressed young woman who jumped onto the metro tracks at a station in the city.
The unidentified woman can be seen as she climbs onto the path of an incoming train but is rescued by a group of officers who pull her back onto the platform.
According to local reports, a police statement claimed that the woman was upset after an argument with an ex-boyfriend.
The footage comes in the light of another railway rescue, in Australia, which saw a young girl struggle to climb off the tracks after she jumped down to receive her hula hoop.
She was later recused by a woman, seconds before the train arrived. The footage illustrated the dangers of trespassing onto railways and the video was released in line with a new campaign to keep people safe.
