Officer Kevin L. Savoia of the Perth Amboy Police Department was called to a section of NJ Transit railroad tracks for a welfare check, after a bystander saw a man lying on the tracks.

As Savoia arrived, he spotted the man, still on the tracks, with a train moving at full speed approximately 600 feet away. Savoia sprinted to alert the man and the train conductor, and his bodycam captured some incredible, intense footage.

HOLY CRAP. I'm out of breath just watching that.

Officer Savoia is being hailed as a hero, but remained humble, saying:

As police officers, our job is to make quick decisions in difficult situations and to act on them. At the end of the day, all that matters is everyone gets home safe . Also at such an early stage of my career, to be able to make an impactful difference in a person's life is incredible and makes me love what I do every day."

While the bad cops make the news more often, it's always good to be reminded that there are plenty of good ones.
