PERTH, Australia -- Transportation officials in Australia are calling it "People Power."

Dozens of Australians rallied together to push a train off a man who was trapped.

The man was boarding the train in Perth on Wednesday morning when he slipped. His leg became jammed in between the train itself and the station platform.

That's when dozens of commuters and railway staff joined forces and rocked the train carriage so the man could free himself.

Officials say he was inspected by paramedics before he boarded the next train.

His identity remains a mystery, but this incident is now world famous.
