A MAN had a narrow escape after falling between carriages at Yardley Wood Railway Station last Wednesday.

A train had just pulled into the station in Highfield Close, Hall Green, when the man, thought to be in his 50s, fell and suffered a gash to his head.

Emergency services pulled him from under the train.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “The patient was taken to Heartlands Hospital.

However, there seems little doubt that this incident had the potential to have ended very differently had the timing been only a few seconds different at the station.”
