According to law enforcement officers, 85-year-old Jiří Dusz tried to ride thru a railway crossing near Bohemia in the Czech Republic. He didn't notice that the crossing barrier arms had already been lowered. He crashed into a barrier, lost his balance and fell on the train tracks. Then nearby 32-year-old Dalibor Vobornik hurried to the rescue and promptly pulled the victim and his vehicle from the tracks.
Police rewarded the savior, acknowledging that the man had carried out a rescue operation before the arrival of the approaching train, whose driver would not have had enough time to stop the train and avoid running over the elderly man.
