Police in Los Angeles made a dramatic rescue over the weekend, pulling a pilot from a plane wreck just seconds before he was struck by a train.
On Friday afternoon, the pilot lost power mid-flight and crashed his single-engine Cessna plane on top of some train tracks near Whiteman Airport.
Video shows police officers pulling the bloodied pilot from the wreckage, just seconds before a commuter train plowed into the wreckage of the aircraft.
