The incident happened in California

An incredible video shows a brave female police officer saving a man from being killed by an oncoming train as she manages to pull him out of his wheelchair which was stuck in the tracks.

The incident occurred in the area of Lodi in California and the footage was recorded on her bodycam.

Officer Urrea was in the area of Lodi Ave and the railroad tracks when she saw a male in a wheelchair who appeared to be stuck on the tracks.

She noticed that the railroad crossing arms started to come down and saw that a train was approaching. She immediately exited her patrol vehicle and began running towards the male. As the train was reaching them, she was able to pull the male out of the wheelchair and they both fell back onto the ground.

The man suffered a leg injury that was tended to immediately by another officer who had arrived to assist. The 66-year-old male was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.
