Accident proves need for train guards - Tesch
An accident that occurred at Woy Woy train station on December 28 was evidence that the NSW Government should not remove guards from trains, according to the Member for Gosford, Ms Liesl Tesch.
"The swift action of the train driver, the guard and platform staff ensured the best possible outcome for the women who became trapped between two carriages and the platform," Ms Tesch said.
She said the guard immediately identified that the women had fallen between the train and platform and reacted swiftly.
The guard and driver uncoupled the two carriages that the woman was trapped between and she was able to be freed.
Ms Tesch said the unnamed woman was taken by ambulance to Gosford Hospital with minor injuries.
"This is a good example of why the State Government should not remove guards from our trains," she said.
