(WATCH) Officers Rescue Pilot Seconds Before Train Hits Crashed Airplane On Railroad Tracks (VIDEO)

Officers in California rescued a pilot who had crashed his plane onto railroad lines just seconds before a train crushed the wreckage to pieces.

According to the Associated Press, a Cessna 172 made an emergency landing shortly after taking off from Whiteman Airport in Pacoima on Sunday at about 2 p.m. PT.

Body camera footage shows two Los Angles Police Department rushing to grab the bloodied pilot to safety moments before the train collides with the plane, sending debris everywhere.

The policemen can be heard yelling, “Go, go go!” as they ran away from the situation.

The only person on the aircraft was the pilot and he was transported to a hospital following the incident. His condition is unknown.

The LAPD Twitter account released a statement that said, “Foothill Division Officers displayed heroism and quick action by saving the life of a pilot who made an emergency landing on the railroad tracks at San Fernando Rd. and Osborne St., just before an oncoming train collided with the aircraft.”

Metrolink rail service was suspended, and traffic was diverted away from the affected region, which is roughly 20 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, according to officials.
