The scene was chaotic. It was Sunday at the Oakland Coliseum station, shortly after the Raiders vs. Lions game, KTVU reported. BART released surveillance footage that showed the unidentified man lose his footing and land on the tracks with a train just feet away.
John O’Connor, a supervisor at BART, witnessed the fall and quickly helped pull the man from certain death. He was back on the platform while the train whizzed by.
Video posted on social media shows O’Connor, a 20-year veteran at BART, embracing the man. BART tweeted the video and wrote, “He saved a life tonight.”
