The two RPF men, who were later identified as SH Manoj and Ashok, jumped on the track to save a 64-old man while the train was just a few metres away from them. 

In the video, an old man dressed in white can be seen stepping down from the platform, onto the railway tracks while commuters are seen waiting for the train to arrive. 

The commuters present on the platform soon take notice of the old man and shout for help. They also warn the old man and request him to move aside. 

Ignoring their calls, the old man sits down on the track, when an RPF personnel jumps on to the track and drags him to safety. 

A few seconds later, another RPF official jumps on to the tracks and the two men escort the man to the platform. 

In the video, locals can be seen extending their hands to pull the old man back to the platform.
