(CNN Newsource) — A Utah police officer rescued a stranded motorist from train tracks with mere seconds to spare Wednesday morning.
That’s no exaggeration.
Trooper Ruben Correa worked to pull an unconscious man out of a car as a train quickly approaches.
The driver had suffered a medical condition that caused him to veer onto the tracks and lose consciousness.
Seconds after Correa freed him, the train slammed into the vehicle.
Medical personnel treated the driver — who is described as a man in his 20s.
He was not injured, and his parents were able to pick him up and take him home.
Correa is a Marine veteran with two years of service with the Utah Highway Patrol.
