To analyse the mechanism of anterior cruciate ligament injury occurring in Mumbai suburban train commuters, 25 patients with history of knee injury on Mumbai suburban railway platform, were studied over the last 10 years. The mode of injury is classified into three types based on biomechanical considerations. Most of the injuries occurred in young population and were of the deceleration variety. The mechanisms of injury were, however, similar to those occurring in various sports.
