A video released by the Richmond Police Department captures an officer pulling a woman from railroad tracks moments before a train speeds by.
The incident was reported on the department’s Facebook page:
On Sunday, June 22, at approximately 1:00 AM, Officer R. Morales with the Richmond Police Department was flagged down in reference to a female sitting on the railroad tracks in town. Officer Morales responded and found a female on the tracks. As he approached the railroad crossing the warning lights and bell sounded for an approaching train. Without regard for his own safety Officer Morales went on the tracks and pulled the female off shortly before the train arrived at the location.
