Crash-landed plane hit by train: Video. Video footage posted on Twitter by the Los Angeles Police Department showed bodycam footage of officers pulling the bleeding pilot from the plane.
Police in Los Angeles, California, pulled the pilot from a crash-landed Cessna seconds before the aircraft was hit by a train on Sunday, sending debris flying in all directions.
The department applauded its officers, saying in the tweet they had “displayed heroism and quick action by saving the life of a pilot who made an emergency landing on the railroad tracks.” Said Luis Jimenez, the 21-year-old music composer who filmed the video:
The plane had a failed takeoff and landed on the train tracks at a popular intersection. Just seconds before impact police officers saved the pilot, and a piece of debris almost hit me.
The pilot was treated for cuts and bruises and is in a stable condition, according to local media. No one on the train was injured, local media reported.
