Video: Officer pulls woman from train tracks

(CNN/Richmond Police) – Dash cam video captures a Texas police officer pulling a woman off train tracks moments before the train speeds past.

Officers Ramon Morales arrived at the railroad crossing in Richmond, Texas just before 1 a.m. Sunday, June 22.

As soon as he pulls up, the lights start flashing and the train crossing arms lower. You can see the officer run to the tracks, and the train blowing its whistle.

The video continues rolling, showing Morales pulling the woman out of the way and into the lights from his car. He then holds the crying woman so she can’t run back at the train.

Neither was hurt. The woman was taken to a hospital for assessment.

Officer Morales has been with the police department for less than a year.
