Driver stops train in North Bengal to let a elephant cross tracks; video viral

DOOARS: A running train screeched to a halt near the Dooars area in North Bengal as the drivers noticed a big elephant on the track yesterday.

Driver R. Kumar and his assistant G K Das let the elephant cross the railway track and save the elephant.

The elephant was less than a kilometre away from the train (no-07541) when the driver saw it crossing the tracks and hit the brakes. This amusing video was shared on Twitter by the Northeast Frontier Railway and has racked up an impressive amount of likes and shares on the microblogging platform.
