Lodi Police Officer Erica Urea was patrolling the area near the train tracks around 8.45am Wednesday morning when she saw the man in a wheelchair, who appeared to be stuck on the tracks. When Uriah saw the railroad warning systems go off and the crossing arm lower, she knew she had to act fast.

Body camera footage shows Uriah running up to the 66-year-old and asking, “Can you stand up?”

The train horn can be heard in the background, growing louder as it approaches the pair. With some quick thinking, Uriah managed to pull the man out of his chair and drag him to safety in time, only seconds remained.

The Lodi Police Department wrote on Facebook alongside the video: “The man suffered a leg injury which was immediately treated by Constable Delgado (who arrived for assistance) and l ‘Agent Oria.’ “The 66-year-old was eventually taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Officer Uriah risked his life to save another, and his actions prevented today’s tragedy. We are very proud of Officer Erika Urea and her heroism.

“The northbound train was going really fast, and I rushed over to break it up,” the sergeant said. Steve Maynard has been added to Lodi News. “She only had a few seconds, and for some reason she couldn’t free the chair, so I grabbed her and pulled her off the chair.
