According to Sun Uk,
A 47-year-old man dropped onto the northbound Northern Line tracks after suddenly falling unwell while waiting for the tube.
He stumbled on the platform before falling onto the live tracks – prompting the unknown bystander to jump onto the live rails and pull him to safety.
The unknown hero was then caught calmly walking away from the scene by CCTV cameras.
The man was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital.
Officers said they have since been told he received light cuts and bruises and will make a full recovery.
Praising the work of the bystander, Superintendent Chris Horton, of British Transport Police, said: “Going onto the tracks is extremely dangerous but the bravery of this man has to be praised.
“The man sprung to the rescue and hauled him back onto the platform, whilst other commuters alerted the emergency services.
