The British Transport Police revealed shocking footage, which shows an intoxicated women falling beneath a train, to highlight the dangers of rail stations to drunk Christmas revellers.
The unnamed woman can be seen getting off the train, stumbling and then rolling under the train. Fortunately, the woman recovered from the ordeal in hospital with just cuts and bruises and the trains were only delayed for 20 minutes.
The video was released alongside a statement to show rail users how a drunken stumble can turn into a life threatening situation.
Inspector Graham Bridges said: "This woman was lucky to only end up with a few minor injuries and, had it not been for the alertness of other passengers who helped her, we could have been dealing with potentially serious injuries.
"We understand that at this time of year, with Christmas fast approaching, people will be out at parties and will be consuming alcohol.
Bridges went on to mention that his officers would have no difficulty in arresting any anti-social drunks over the Christmas holiday.
"Traditionally we see an increase of people using trains and stations at this time of year," he said. "Please enjoy yourself, but it is important that you remember to behave appropriately.
The video ends with a short message from the BTP urging the public to have a merry Christmas.
