Tiruchirapalli, Jun 15 (UNI) The efforts of an alert guard and other passengers in the Tiruchirapalli-Chennai Pallavan superfast express train to save the life of a 30 year-old woman passenger, who was found lying on the adjacent track, proved futile here today.
Railway sources said, the guard, who noticed the woman, immediately informed the engine driver, who stopped the train. The guard and other passengers then handed over the injured woman to the station authorities here.
