A blind Scots man says he could have been 'minutes from death' after falling from a platform in a Glasgow east end railway station.

Michael Tornow, 41, from Glasgow, fell at Bellgrove Station due to a lack of tactile paving which would have warned him of the platform edge.

He was unable to climb back himself but was helped by other passengers who put their own safety at risk, reports Glasgow Live. "A train was due in about five minutes after me falling, and I would probably not be alive now if it weren’t for the help other people gave me," he said.
