A pregnant woman is lucky to be alive as an alert Metro train driver in Beijing pulled the emergency brake and stopped in time after she had accidentally fallen onto the track this morning, Beijing Times reported.

The incident occurred when the woman, who is six months pregnant, fainted and fell off the platform and onto the track at Line 13's Huoying Station around 8am, the report said.
