An Adelaide teenager is being hailed a hero after saving a man from certain death at a busy train station.
Andre Turner leapt into action after seeing a drunk man fall onto the tracks at Brighton, knocking himself unconscious as a train approached.
Andre was on his own at the station on Saturday night when the intoxicated man came crashing down onto the tracks.
With only a minute until the next train was due, Andre knew he had to act fast.
“I was kind of panicking and first and then I realised I actually had to do something,” he told 7NEWS.
'He was like out cold.'
“He was like out cold and he was like bleeding and all that.
“I didn't really know what to do so I kind of like jumped down and asked him if he was alright but he didn't wake up.
He said the adrenaline kicked in before he was able to pull the unconscious man to safety just in time before waiving at the train driver to stop.
