Londoners Rescue Dog On Train Tracks At Elephant And Castle Station

Dog overboard!

London commuters may have a reputation for being stony faced at the best of times, but we can rally round in times of need, as this clip demonstrates.

On Thursday Sammy the King Charles Cavalier spaniel found himself in dire straits after he slipped down the gap between the platform and a train at Elephant and Castle station.

Rescue in progress 

As Sammy’s frantic owner tried to reach him, a train worker and several travellers fell to their knees to lift the scared dog to safety.

An audible sigh of relief can be heard as a somewhat shocked Sammy was finally deposited back into his owner’s arms.

We love a happy ending!
