The man was looking at his phone when he fell
A video has emerged showing the moment a man who was distracted by his phone fell onto train tracks in Buenos Aires.
The unnamed Argentinian man, 49, didn’t notice he was nearing the edge of the train platform because he was engrossed in his phone on November 13. He fell directly onto the tracks.
Fortunately for him, passers by came to his rescue and pulled him back onto the platform, where he was given help by emergency services.
It happened on the Aguero stop of the D line in Buenos Aires. He was wearing an orthopedic brace when he fell onto the rail tracks. The man refused to be taken to the hospital for medical evaluation.
