Tesch calls for retention of train guards

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has called for the retention of train guards, following a recent accident at Tascott.

Ms Tesch said the guard had "undoubtedly saved the life" of a commuter who had fallen under the platform.

She said the guard was responsible for noticing the person lying between the tracks, signalling an emergency stop and calling emergency services.

"He then went to assist the injured person," said Ms Tesch.

"As the guard provided First Aid, he was supported by a passenger who provided emergency services with all the necessary details of the incident.

"Using his First Aid training, the guard was able to deal with the injuries."

Ms Tesch said he continued to provide reassurance and care until emergency services arrived.

"His knowledge of his surroundings enabled quick access by emergency services and provided an effective evacuation of the injured person."
