In a flash, Mr Mohamed Ferdaus Mohamed Yusoff bolted up a moving escalator at an MRT station to grab hold of a little boy hanging off its side.
The SBS Transit employee hauled him over the handrail, but lost his balance and fell on the steps of the moving escalator, hurting his knee.
But he managed to hold the boy tight and hit the emergency stop button.
The six-second rescue drama that saved the boy from a 5m fall took place at Sixth Avenue MRT station on Tuesday at about 6.40pm.
