LAPD officers pull pilot from plane seconds before train crash in dramatic video
The Los Angeles Police Department late Sunday released footage that showed police officers pulling a bleeding pilot to safety just moments before a barreling train collided with his plane stuck on the tracks.
The crash occurred at about 2 p.m. in Pacoima. The Cessna 172, a single-engine airplane, landed on the Metrolink Antelope Valley line train tracks.
Rescue crews arrived at the scene and managed to extricate the plane’s pilot seconds before a speeding train collided with the plane.
LAPD headquarters praised the officers who managed to pull the pilot to safety
