Video shows an adult and shrimp one strolling alongside the platform. The shrimp one falls from it as a practice approaches. The shrimp one tries to get back onto the platform but is unable. Shelkhe is then seen racing alongside the tracks over to the shrimp one. He then lifts her onto the platform, before sliding onto it moments before the practice arrives.

Shelke became as soon as honored later in the day for his fearless actions.
