Man jumped in front of train to save unconscious woman

A man who jumped onto the tracks and saved an unconscious woman from an oncoming train at Koenji Station in Tokyo
Seeing the woman get off the train at the station and fall off the opposite side of the platform, Sato ran off the train, asked another man on the platform to go get a station employee and jumped onto the tracks.
Sato found the woman lying on her side, unconscious and unresponsive, with an approaching train only about 10 meters away. Sato managed to turn the woman on her back in the 1.06-meter-wide space between the rails and took shelter himself in a space under the platform.
The train stopped without hitting the woman, after five of the 10 cars passed right above her. Once the train had come to a halt, Sato looked into the 30 centimeter space between the bottom of the train and the cross ties and asked the woman if she was okay.
