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.

Authorities say the pilot suffered only ‘minor injuries’ and that no one on the ground was hurt.
