An Australian woman saves the life of a young girl who was moments away from being hit by a train, at a western Sydney train station.

The incident was caught on CCTV at Flemington station.

In the footage, two girls are seen playing with a hula hoop, when the toy suddenly rolls off and falls onto the train tracks, one of the girls’ jumps off the platform to reclaim the hula hoop.

However, she fails to climb back onto the platform and just at that moment, seconds before a train stops at the station, a woman rushes to pull her from the tracks.

The young girl was rescued with no physical injuries.
