Los Angeles police officers successfully rescued an injured pilot just moments before an oncoming train plowed into his crashed plane after an emergency landing.

In the shocking bodycam video that has since gone viral, police struggled to pull the downed pilot from the wreckage of his airplane within seconds of a Metrolink train shattering it to pieces. Take a look:

Footage of the intense moment from other angles illustrate just how close the train came to ending multiple lives in an instant:
