The narrow escape happened at Corinthians-Itaquera train station in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
Her rescue was captured by a commuter on camera phone. The shaky footage shows the train barreling into the station as the woman is hauled up from the tracks by two men.
The woman, who has not been identified, appeared overcome by the incident and let out a cry of relief and fell to the ground after being pulled to safety. However she reportedly walked away without injury.
A security guard and another man saved the woman’s life with their quick-thinking.
On March 29, a 63-year-old man who fell onto subway tracks in Philadelphia was saved by a Good Samaritan.
Christopher Knafelc, 32, was sitting several yards away at the North Philadelphia station when he saw a man tumble off the platform.
It was unclear why the man fell on the tracks but he was seen on surveillance video appearing to walk absentmindedly straight off the platform.
He was hospitalized complaining of pain but said to have not been seriously injured.
Mr Knafelc says he was just in the right place at the right time.
