“Police in Los Angeles, California, pulled the pilot from a crash-landed Cessna seconds before the aircraft was hit by a train, sending debris flying in all directions,” Reuters captioned the video. You can watch the terrifying video below.
This is without a doubt one of the most terrifying near-misses that I’ve ever seen in my life. That pilot should go out and buy a lottery ticket because he’s one of the luckiest men on the planet.
Not only did he survive the initial plane crash, he just barely got out of the plane before it was blown away by the train.
If there are a lot more close calls out there, I certainly haven’t seen them!
