According to the video shared on line by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the pilot of the crashed aircraft was pulled out seconds before the train hit the wreckage.

The footage showed Cops pulling an injured pilot from the crashed plane just seconds before the train smashes into it at high speed.

“Go! Go! Go! Go!,” an officer yelled as they dragged the pilot out of the airplane and away from the oncoming train.

According to officer Damian Castro, one of the officers who rescued, he didn’t have a second to think during the rescue.

“It happened so fast, we didn’t really have that much time to think. All I could think was try to get this man to safety, didn’t really want to look back to see how far the train was coming, you could hear it coming

“It wasn’t until I heard one of my coworkers behind me said the train is coming and we need to get him out now,” he said.
