In a spine-chilling video, a man fell onto the rail tracks just as a train was arriving at the platform.
The incident took place at Coliseum station, California, on Sunday. It all happened when people were returning after the Oakland Raiders game.
Here is the dramatic platform video of our humble hero John O'Connor saving a man's life at the Coliseum station Sunday night. John is a Transportation Supervisor and has worked at BART for more than 20 years. An amazing rescue. pic.twitter.com/KrO75nqPYb

The incident was recorded by the surveillance camera at the platform. A transit worker at Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) quickly grabbed and pulled him up and saved him at the last moment.
The transit worker was identified as John O’Connor, who was working at the station for crowd control that evening. He was standing close to the man and sprung himself to save him just as the train was arriving.
