A woman has been saved, after fainting and falling onto a Madrid metro line, as the train was entering the station.

The train was approaching the Marques de Vadillo station, when the woman fell, but stopped in time when the driver saw someone running along the tracks.

A policeman, from the National Police, heard the impact of the 52-year-old woman's body as she fell, and then climbed onto the tracks to rescue her.
