A girl was trapped inside a compartment when the train caught fire. All that I thought of at that moment was to bring the girl out of the fire safely. I tried entering the compartment through the emergency window once and thrice through the half open door. It was rather difficult because the train was running fast. I jumped into the compartment through the door. Initially I could not find the girl anywhereloudly called out for her. Finally, I found her behind a sack full of sugar. She was partially unconscious. She could keep her eyes open. I thoroughly shook her to wake her up. The fire was becoming really bad. I quickly held her tight and jumped out of train.
