A passenger was dragged along by a tram in Hanover and was seriously injured.

The 40-year-old was dragged about a hundred yards on Wednesday before his arm came out of the door.

The man fell next to the tracks, as the police announced.

Rescue workers took care of the injured and brought him to a clinic.

According to the information, the driver of the tram was initially unaware of the accident and drove on.
