Chichester have a go hero pushed on to railway line
A man has survived being pushed onto a 750-volt live track after trying to defuse a violent argument.
The 46-year-old Sussex man was standing at the crowded station in Hampshire late on Tuesday when he saw another man punched in an unprovoked attack.
He stepped in to try and calm the situation on the busy platform but was pushed onto the tracks by the attacker.
Detective Constable Phil James, from British Transport Police said: "I cannot emphasise how dangerous this assault was. The man, who bravely stepped in to calm a heated situation, came very close to the 750-volt live rail and was quite understandably left very shaken as a result."
The 29-year-old man from Havant in Hampshire was standing on the platform at Portsmouth and Southsea station with a friend when he was approached by the attacker aged around 25 and punched in the face.
In a bid to calm the situation, the man from Chichester who was waiting on the platform, stepped in to defuse the fight.
"The suspect then suddenly pushed the man onto the rail tracks," DC James said.
He needed hospital treatment for a cut head but was otherwise unhurt.
BTP said officers were now examining CCTV footage to try and identify the man.
