RICHMOND, Texas - A police officer in Texas is getting a lot of attention for a heroic act.

The officer was on patrol Sunday morning when he got a call of a woman sitting on some railroad tracks.

As he arrived on the scene, the crossing arm began to drop.

He heard the train barreling toward the woman, so he ran onto the tracks and pulled her to safety.
