An Australian woman owes her life to these alert officers who quite literally rescued her from being crushed.

The unidentified woman in her drunken state was attempting to cross the train tracks at a suburban station in Melbourne late at night and did not see the  oncoming train.

 

The dramatic footage shows the exact moment  she was rescued.

The three Protective Services Officers (PSOs) rushed to the help, and pulled her up just seconds before the train arrived.

Two of the officers have been identified as officer Steve Goldman and officer Ben Mitchell, all three received official commendations for their bravery.

A senior officer of Victoria Police, Deputy Commissioner of Regional Operations Andrew Crisp  called the officers' quick-thinking "extremely brave" and termed the woman's choice to cross the track "irresponsible."
