Some LAPD officers are being hailed as heroes after pulling an injured pilot from a plane wreck moments before an oncoming train smashed through it.

The wild video showing the incident was taken on January 10 in Los Angeles, and it shows the bloodied pilot escaping the train by a few seconds.

"Go go go go go!" someone can be heard shouting in the video as they made their escape.

The Cessna aircraft was destroyed but police say no one else was injured.

The LAPD shared video of the dramatic incident on Twitter and applauded the cops for their “heroism.”

“Foothill Division Officers displayed heroism and quick action by saving the life of a pilot who made an emergency landing on the railroad tracks at San Fernando Rd. and Osborne St., just before an oncoming train collided with the aircraft,” read the caption.

The bodycam footage released by the LAPD shows officers struggling to get the injured pilot out of the wrecked Cessna.

They finally managed to haul him out and then quickly drag his body away from the crash site as the train approached in the background.

Seconds later, you see the train crash through the plane and send debris all over the place.

The plane went down soon after takeoff and crash-landed onto the train track, reported Reuters.

“The plane had failed takeoff and landed on the train tracks at a popular intersection. Just seconds before impact, police officers saved the pilot, and pieces of debris almost hit me,” witness Luis Jimenez said.

The pilot was treated for his injuries, which included a few bruises and cuts. He was listed in stable condition.
