RICHMOND, Texas --Dash-cam video shows a Texas police officer responding to a report of a woman lying on railroad tracks -- with a train speeding toward her.

Early Sunday morning, a citizen flagged down Richmond Police officer Ramon Morales and told him a woman was sitting on the train tracks.

He flipped on the overhead lights in his patrol car, which automatically turned on the dash camera. He arrived just as the crossing arms at the intersection were going down.

Ignoring the oncoming train, he can be seen on camera springing into action. He grabs the woman under the arms and drags her off the tracks, seconds before the train comes rushing by.

Morales held the woman with one hand and used his radio with the other.

The woman was taken to a hospital for assessment.
