In a shocking incident a policeman saved an elderly man from being run over by a truck. The incident occurred at a town in Raigad, Maharashtra and was caught on CCTV on Sunday, 6 June.

An elderly pedestrian was walking on the street, unmindful that he had come right in front of a large truck. The truck did not take notice of the walking pedestrian and knocked him down.

The truck driver didn’t notice that a man was walking right in front of him. I thought that the man would go under the left tyre of the truck.

Fortunately, Vishal Yevale, a policeman who was on duty at the time, noticed the incident and quickly pulled the man away, in the nick of time. Had it not been for Vishal, the man was sure to have come under the truck. Thankfully, the ‘hero cop’ was there to prevent the accident from happening, and tragedy was averted.

The driver of the truck has been booked for negligent driving.
