After a woman slipped into the eight-inch gap between the platform and a train car, passengers in Japan successfully pushed the train back, and the woman was rescued without any serious injuries.
About 40 people reportedly helped rail staffers who were pushing the car once they heard an announcement about the trapped passenger.

It begs the question – would CTA passengers do the same thing? I would say yes, probably. Though it’s highly improbable that someone could slip into the very narrow gap between CTA cars and the platform.
