Transit Employee Rescues Commuter Split Second Before Train Arrives

Drunk man fell onto the tracks and into the path of an arriving train

 

You may have seen yesterday's story about a public transportation employee in Oakland who pulled a drunk guy off the tracks as a train was approaching. Well, the video has been released, and it's frightening.

The train is going 36 miles an hour, and is about 60 feet away when the guy falls onto the tracks. The employee's name is John O'Connor, and he PULLS the guy up by the shoulders just as the train goes by.
