Woman searches for mystery hero who pulled her off tracks moments before train arrived

A woman is trying to track down a heroic stranger who rescued her from being run over by a train.

Tegan Badham, 21, was burnt and electrocuted when she fell onto the line at King’s Cross station in central London.

Moments before the next train pulled in, a man lifted Tegan from the tracks and took her to safety.

“I just tripped. I can’t even tell you how or what happened

“I can’t even remember getting onto the track, I just remember coming around and being like ‘oh my Gosh I’m on the track. What am I going to do?'”

Tegan was electrocuted as she tried to recover herself and suffered burns on her body.

“The worst ones were on my leg and my back,” she said.

“Thankfully, that man just grabbed me. If he hadn’t grabbed me I honestly would not be here.

“My life was just flashing before my eyes. When I got out I just kept my eyes shut because I was freaking out.

“I just sat on the floor and kept quiet because I had no idea what was going on.”

Following the incident, Tegan needs help to perform everyday tasks like using the bathroom and getting dressed.

Her main focus is to find the man who rescued her and thank him for saving her life.

But due to the shock of the incident, she was not able to get a good look at the man, who she described as medium built with dark hair.

“I would just be emotional if I spoke to him,” she said.

“I wouldn’t even know where to start. I just want to thank him and tell him I’m so grateful for him doing that. He’s probably a bit traumatised by it too.”

Tegan had been on her way to see Nicki Minaj play at Wireless Festival when tragedy struck at around 6pm on July 10.

The music lover had already attended the event on Friday but rumours of gunshots at the festival put her off from attending the following day.

“It came to 2.30pm on the Sunday and I really wanted to see Nicki Minaj,” Tegan said.”

She was the whole reason we booked, she’s my favourite person, so we got the train in but I never made it.”

Tegan slipped while heading towards the Victoria Line to travel to the festival at Finsbury Park.

Now she is recovering well from her injuries and enjoying herself once more.

She said: “I’m moving really well now. Obviously the first week my back was killing but now I can actually move my hands and put my clothes on myself.

“I think I’ve got a new outlook on life now, I’m just enjoying myself.”

A TfL spokesperson commented on the incident.

“We are sorry to hear that a customer at King’s Cross St Pancras station sustained minor injuries after a fall onto the Victoria line track and would like to thank those who helped her,” they said.

“We wish her a full and quick recovery and want to reassure customers that their safety is paramount to TfL.”
