Thiruvananthapuram: Leela is back on track. And the engine who dragged her back to life is Ammini, a stranger until the eventful Friday.

Leela, a cleaning staff at the Thiruvananthapuram Central railway station, was on her job inside the Chennai Egmore train when she felt the train moving. The panicked woman jumped off the train and slipped through the gap between the train and the platform.

Just when everything seemed lost, she was pulled up by a hand onto the platform. She was saved, with only a bruise on her toe to remind her of the incident. She saw herself in a tight hug of consolation.

Her savior, Ammini, was waiting for a train to go back to her house at Varkkala. She had come to town along with her sister Shantha and brother-in-law Vijayan to attend the wedding of a relative at Manarcaud.

The Chennai Egmore Express was just leaving the platform No 1 and Ammini saw the cleaner falling from the locomotive. She swung to action before the others could react.

Leela was given first aid at the station.
