Commuters Rescue Girl Trapped Under A Tram

Dramatic footage has emerged of commuters in Dublin freeing a schoolgirl caught under a tram.

The girl was involved in a collision with a Luas tram in the city centre during the morning rush hour.

She became trapped between the tram and the platform and was unable to dislodge herself.

The video shows commuters trying to release her by pushing the tram away from the platform.

They succeed after several attempts and the terrified girl, who can be heard screaming, pulls herself clear.

She reportedly suffered minor leg injuries and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

The Luas light railway system connects east and south Dublin with the city centre.

The operator has said it will review the footage, which was shot by Facebook user ?ukasz Pigu?a, as part of its investigation into the incident.
