Police Officer Saves Woman From Being Hit By Train
A Texas cop is being hailed a hero after he saved an apparently suicidal woman from being hit by an oncoming train.
Dramatic dashcam footage shows Ramon Morales jumping out of his car at a level crossing in Richmond and dragging the screaming lady, who was sitting down on railroad tracks, away.
Seconds later, the locomotive is seen speeding past.
The 27-year-old then held onto the woman as he spoke on his radio to stop her from running back towards the train.
Morales, a former Marine who’s only been with the Richmond Police Department for 10 months, has refused to comment on Sunday’s 1 a.m. incident.
Instead, he said praise should be heaped on a passerby who initially informed him about the woman.
But cop colleagues have hailed his selfless actions.
