metro-suicide-thwarted_3Whether it be accidents or suicides, people ending up on train or subway tracks too often ends in tragedy. A situation that could have had a similar outcome was prevented in Columbia when a police officer saved the person attempting to jump on the tracks just in time.

A surveillance video posted to YouTube shows what is said to be an attempted suicide at a Medellin Metro station. A man is seen walking toward and away from the tracks looking for the oncoming train. Soon, a security guard or police officer comes into the camera’s view. Then, right as the train is pulling into the station, the man makes a leap toward the tracks, but the officer yanks him backward.
