It happened in Perth, Austraila. A commuter was jumping on a train and his leg got trapped between the platform and the car. The outcome looked bleak. Instead of whipping out cellphones to document what could have been a disaster, everyone came together to push the train away and free the man. It was (and is) a moving story, noting the power of people and the beauty of the collective.
