\"He saw a tiny hand reaching up from the track\": Tube driver saves child\'s life as unions fight driverless trains.

Just days after Boris Johnson pledged to introduce driverless tube trains within two years, unions have highlighted the near-miss incident to stress the need for staff

Near miss: The tube driver spotted the boy after the train\'s automatic device had showed the platform was clear Getty

A tube driver saved the life of a little boy who fell between the platform and the train after spotting his tiny hand reaching up from the track.

Just days after London Mayor Boris Johnson pledged to introduce driverless tube trains within two years, unions have highlighted the near-miss incident to stress the need for staff.

Driver’s union Aslef said the automatic devices in place showed the platform was clear and it was safe for the Tube train to depart.

But, as the driver took a last look back along the platform, he saw the little boy’s hand outstretched from under the train.

General secretary Mick Whelan said: \"The driver, on a final visual safety check, saw a tiny hand reaching up from the track.

“The train remained in position and a young life was saved.”

The five-year-old escaped without injury after the incident, which happened at Finchley Road station, on the Jubilee line, on Sunday evening.

Hitting out at the Mayor’s proposed transport changes, which he branded “irresponsible, callous and opportunist, Mr Whelan added: “Boris Johnson has been playing politics with the issue of driverless trains.

“He thinks he is currying favour with voters with this stand. How many votes are a young child\'s life worth?

“How would he explain to those watching horrified parents that his proposal is a good one?

\"On Sunday all the automatic devices showed the platform was clear. Only a driver could have averted a potential tragedy.

\"Boris Johnson is wrong to continue to push his policy for driverless Tube trains when it can threaten the lives of London\'s travelling public. I want him to accept that it is a mistake.\"

London Underground\'s network services director Nigel Holness said: \"In this case our staff followed their established safety procedures to bring the incident to a safe conclusion and without injury.

“The whole design and operation of the network would be different with driverless trains and therefore we cannot compare the two.

\"Many incidents on the network are, and will always be, customer-related and we will of course always provide fully for handling those safely and efficiently.\"

Transport for London (TfL) confirmed that the child fell between a stationary train and the platform at Finchley Road station, adding that staff followed their established procedures to \"swiftly\" respond and bring the incident to a safe conclusion.

The child and parents were able to continue their journeys without reported injury.

It is standard safety practice for drivers at the station to check CCTV in their cabs before moving their trains off from the platforms and this process was followed correctly, said Tfl.

Nu inteleg de ce nu. Metroul din Dubai nu are conductori/soferi...(nu stiu exact cum le spune) si merge perfect, nu exista probleme.

si aici este DLR ul , care merge .
Problema este mult mai ampla : metroul din Dubai a inceput mult mai tarziu si a fost usor sa il introduca pe cel fara "driver" .
problema ca sa il schimbi pe acesta deja existent ... sa inlocuiesti tot sistemul ,sa dai afara oamenii de la munca etc .
Stiai ca London Underground e primul metrou din lume ?
