A similar case in the Rome underground A line. A man, possibly drunk, fell on the rails while the train was coming. The train managed to slow down enough so that it hit the man but not too hard. I suppose some kind of rake prevented the man to end up under the wheels.

No mention is made of people helping, not helping etc. the person in need.
