Video Shows Worker Save Drunken Man from Tracks as Train Rapidly Approaches

A Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) supervisor is being celebrated as a hero after he saved a drunken man who had fallen onto the tracks just as a train was approaching the Oakland station.

In surveillance video shared Tuesday on YouTube by BART, we see the moment supervisor John O’Connor, who has worked for the company for 24 years, was quick to act when he spotted the man fall onto the tracks at the Northern California station, per the Associated Press.

It almost happens so fast, if you blink while watching the video you will miss it. Check it out.

At one point in the clip, we see O’Connor, almost effortlessly, reach down and yank the man up by his shoulders and put him back onto the platform within seconds of the train’s arrival. (Read more from “Video Shows Worker Save Drunken Man from Tracks as Train Rapidly Approaches” HERE)
