Commuters at Dongzhimen subway station in downtown Beijing made a joint push of a train and free a passenger sandwiched between a carriage and the platform in a dramatic rescue on Thursday night.

When the person got stuck at around 8 pm, subway staff tried to push the train on their own but failed. Commuters volunteered en masse to help, shouting "One, two, three" to time their efforts.

The incident ended with a round of applause at 8:12 pm when the passenger was rescued.
