A ten year old Italian boy falls onto the tracks while playing a game on an electronic device. As a mother, this is a hard video for me to watch. Where was his mother or father? A bystander just happened to see the young man fall and acted quickly as a train was expected in less than a minute. He was apparently accompanied by his mother and sister, but you can’t see them in the video.
Policeman Alessandro Micalizzi was the gentleman who rescued the young boy. This is what he had to say,
He was with his mother and sister, and before he fell I saw them out of the corner of my eye and he was completely lost in his game and wasn’t looking where he was going.
I just had a few seconds because he had got off a train and mine was due in less than a minute so I acted as quickly as I could, making sure not to touch the rails.
