VIDEO: California Officers Pull Man Out of Path of Oncoming Train

Two California deputies saved a man from being hit by an oncoming train and the dramatic rescue was all caught on video.

Dep. Lance Whitted, from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s office, pulled a driver to safety Monday night, just seconds before a commuter train came down the tracks in Sunnyvale, California.

His partner, Dep. Erik Rueppel, tried to buy Whitted more time as he waved for the oncoming train to slow down, ABC News affiliate KGO reported.

The driver had minor injuries.

If this person was trying to commit suicide he picked a sure thing. If he didn't want suicide he has Deputy Whitted to thank for his life!
