Officers in California saved a pilot who crashed onto railroad tracks seconds before a train smashed the wreckage into pieces.

On Sunday, a Cessna 172 made an emergency landing around 2 p.m. PT shorty after takeoff from Whiteman Airport in Pacoima, according to the Associated Press.

Two officers from the Los Angeles Police Department can be seen on body camera footage pulling the bloodied pilot to safety moments before the train collided with the aircraft.

"Go, go go!" one of the officers shouted while running away.
