WATCH: Soldier jumps to the rescue after man in wheelchair falls onto train tracks


A group of good Samaritans in Washington D.C. pulled a man to safety after he fell on train tracks on the July fourth holiday….and it was all caught on tape!

As you can see in this security video, the man in the wheelchair rolled right over the edge of the train platform – and onto the tracks below!

The man says he was looking at the train arrival times and did not realize just how close he was to the edge.

But, several people jumped down to save the man, including an army specialist who says his training kicked in.

The group was able to pull the man to safety just about two minutes before the next train arrived.

The man suffered a fractured wrist as well as a laceration on his leg.
