Girl Trapped under Tram

Dramatic footage has emerged of commuters in Dublin miraculously freeing a schoolgirl caught under a tram.

In an incident during the morning rush hour, the girl was involved in a collision with a Luas tram.

She became trapped between the tram and the platform and unable to dislodge herself.

The video shows commuters desperately trying to release the terrified girl by pushing the tram away from the platform.

After several attempts they succeeded and the screaming girl was pulled clear.

She suffered minor leg injuries and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

The Luas light railway system connects east and south Dublin with the city centre.

The operator has said it will review the footage to investigate the cause of the incident.
