Cheating death by KTX

Yonhap reports that Miryang Station worker Hwang Gyu-yeong is being hailed for risking his life to rush a woman out of the way of an oncoming KTX train after she inexplicably decided to step down from the platform and walk across the tracks on November 3.


If you watch the video at the bottom of this page, you see that the train arrives about 5 seconds after they step off the tracks.

Oh no! Video not working. Is it my browser or others having the same problem?

It works for me on Firefox, and I imagine it would work for IE. What's interesting in the video is that the woman appears to be looking at the station worker who's rushing towards her, but she steps down anyway. Very strange.

According to Korea Beat, another Korean man saved a woman in Tokyo from a train as well, after she fell on the tracks...

Yeah, the video isn't going to work in Google Chrome.
