There is an action movie in the scene near Hollywood on Sunday: a passenger plane crashes into a level crossing, then by injured police officers from the cockpit, just seconds before the device is sprayed. A train.
Los Angeles Police released a video of the rescue recorded on officers’ on-board camera on Twitter, saying the single engine suffered a loss of momentum when it took off from a nearby airport.
The controlled Septuagenarian had to make an emergency landing, landing in the middle of the city and resting half way on the railroad tracks.
In the police video, you can see the officers busy pulling the pilot out of the cockpit, his face bleeding and stunned. Five seconds later, a full-speed train collided head-on with the plane, causing debris to fly around.
“I think this guy should buy a lotto ticket because he cheated twice to death in ten more minutes,” Robert Sherak, one of the two policemen who stopped the pilot, told NBC television security.
The pilot was taken to hospital and his condition was stable on Sunday evening. The emergency services said he was alone on the plane and there were no other injuries in the crash.
