Quick-thinking Tube passengers and station staff have been praised for saving the life of a blind man who fell onto the tracks at Finchley Road station this morning.
The man, who Transport for London (TFL) described as “fully blind”, fell from the platform while a train was approaching.
After two fellow commuters flagged down station staff, the power to the line was cut and an oncoming train halted.
The man was then helped to safety.
A TFL spokeswoman told the Ham&High: “He wasn’t injured at all.”
