New Japan Pro Wrestling is the biggest pro wrestling promotion in Japan. NJPW has an unopposed presence in Japanese pro wrestling industry and is already exposed to fans around the word.

It’s president, Takami Ohbari recently took to Twitter to share a heartwarming story with followers. Ohbari, who returned to Japan following a busy visit to the U.S., saved a little girl from getting crushed at a train station.

His tweet, which is in Japanese, was translated by a Reddit user, DamieN62, with a little help from Google Translate. Ohbari is glad he was able to save the young girl from possible death. Here’s what he said.

I just returned (to Japan) and am on my way home by train. A few minutes ago, a girl who could barely stand fell between the train and the platform. She was lying on the platform, and with the help of her mother, we managed to pull her up. Her little face could barely fit through the gap.

Parents beware!

Since I retired from volleyball, my height has never been so useful. My heart is still racing.

Ohbari was in the U.S. to promote NJPW’s upcoming crossover event with AEW. The Forbidden Door pay-per-view event takes place at the United Center in Chicago on June 26th.
