Mumbai: An 18-year-old man sustained leg and hand injuries when he fell off a running Mumbai local train after being hit by a signal pole on Thursday morning.
The labourer, identified as Danish Hussain Khan, a resident of Bhaskar Nagar in Kalwa, along with three other passengers broke through a narrow, closed door of a motor coach (which is attached between the coaches) of a suburban train, the official said.
He said Khan lost his balance and fell on the tracks after hitting a signal pole near the slow line between Kalwa and Thane stations at around 9.30 am.
A video of the incident recorded by some passengers travelling from Pune to Mumbai CSMT on Deccan Queen went viral on social media.
