Bodycam footage released by the Lodi Police Department shows Officer Erika Urrea driving in her car when she sees a wheelchair-bound man who appears to be stuck on the train tracks. Urrea jumps from her car and manages to pull the man out of his wheelchair, both falling to the ground as the train speeds by.
The 66-year old man suffered a leg injury and was transported to a local hospital, according to police.
"Officer Urrea risked her own life to save another and her actions prevented a tragedy today," Lodi Police Department posted on their Facebook page. "We are extremely proud of Officer Erica Urrea and her heroism."
