Two management workers in Newark, Delaware rescued a female driver just in time Thursday morning from an on-coming train after her car was stuck on the surrounding tracks.

According to WCAU-TV, the workers convinced the woman to leave her car after being unable to remove it from the tracks. Within a few seconds, the car was demolished by the speeding train.

“She probably would have sat there a little bit longer, and said, ‘Oh, I’ve got time to get my pocket book, and it would have been too late,” said Shawn Brown, one of the two heroic workers who saved the woman.

“I told her four times and I walked away, and I came out, and I said I can’t leave her. So I went back and said ‘Come on, get out this car.’ She stepped one foot out, and the time she got the second foot out, that train came in three seconds and wiped her whole car out.”
