The Los Angeles Police Department just pulled off one of the most dramatic rescues I have ever seen.
A plane was forced to crash land on the street and stopped on train tracks.
The LAPD was able to pull the pilot out of the plane only seconds before a train came down the tracks, shattering the entire wreckage.
Most of the stories we see on TV and in the news about police these days are always taking shots at them.
Democrats would love us all to believe that every cop is racist and out to kill minorities.
Some of them have gone so far as to say that police start their shifts hoping to shoot someone.
Obviously, that is not the case.
Look no further than these police officers that had to rescue a downed pilot who crash-landed his plane on train tracks in Pacoima.
The pilot seemed unconscious and stuck when the police arrived.
The real problem, however, was that a train was roaring down the tracks, not giving the police very much time to get the man free.
Numerous officers were working to free the man when a train could be heard.
With literally seconds to spare, the officers managed to get the man free and drag him away from the wreckage as the train arrived, hitting the plane and sending debris everywhere.
Had they been any slower, all of them would have been dead…

And here is a view from a different angle…

The plane crashed shortly after it took off from Whiteman Airport in the San Fernando Valley community of Pacoima.
The pilot’s name was not released, but he was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
