IMPORTANT: Train operator didn’t kick the kid in the head. He softened the impact instead!

The train operator risked breaking his leg while putting it in between of the hard metallic edge and kid’s head in order to soften the impact.

Edit: Thanks for getting this into the frontpage. All I wanted is that those who called the train conductor/engineer a “douchebag” yesterday would see it from different perspective, that’s why I felt it is important to share this thought.

Seemed like an important thing to share, especially because I instinctively judged the train operator as well before I saw it. If he hadn’t done that, you probably would have heard this guy’s story from the news article of his hospitalization… or his obituary.
