The woman in her 70s is in hospital after becoming trapped at Macarthur station.
Paramedics say it’s incredibly lucky the woman only suffered a minor shoulder injury.
She had been waiting for a train with a friend on platform two but when it arrived about 4pm, something went horribly wrong.
Somehow the woman slipped between the platform and two carriages and became trapped.
It took emergency crews around 40 minutes to free her, but remarkably she remained very calm throughout the ordeal.
