A Colombian man’s plan to end his life by jumping in front of an oncoming train was thwarted by a cop, whose timing was extremely crucial to save the man’s life.
Surveillance footage from the scene shows the Medellin man loitering around the area, apparently waiting for the train to arrive. The cop arrives some moments later and a few seconds later swiftly yanks the man off the path of the train at the last possible second you can imagine.
The cop has identified himself as Gustavo Chaparro, saying in response to the shower of gratitude for his bravery by YouTube users: ‘Thanks to all those who want to show their appreciation, but it is my job to protect and serve the community. And I will continue to do so!’
The perfect example of who a cop should be.
