Dash-cam video released by the Utah Highway Patrol shows a Utah state trooper pulling an unconscious man from his car two seconds before the car is hit and crushed by a train:

Trooper Ruben Correa was on a traffic stop when he was notified about a car that was stopped on train tracks not far away. When Correa arrived he found a man in his twenties unconscious in the vehicle. A medical issue caused the driver to swerve off the road and onto the adjacent tracks.

From the time Correa exited his patrol car to the time the train hit was around 35 seconds. Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Nick Street said the victim is doing fine due to Correa’s “incredible and heroic” actions.

“At that point, I actually wasn’t really thinking,” Correa said. “I was just doing my job.”
