This is the moment a group of hero rail passengers teamed up to rescue a dog after it fell onto train tracks.

In a shocking video clip, dozens of brave strangers can be seen rushing to help the terrified pooch after it plunged down the gap between the train and the platform.

One person jumped onto the tracks to get a better view of the lost dog during the incident at Glasgow Queen Street Low Level on Monday. 

Another woman, called Demi, can be seen calling out to the dog, as she wedges herself under the train to try and grab the animal.

A pair of passengers eventually managed to pull the dog out from the gap and the poor pet appeared scared, wriggling around as they lifted it to safety.
