The young man had a seizure and fell on the tracks. Wesley Autrey, a 51-year-old dad traveling with his two young daughters, jumped in after him, rolled both of them into the trough between the tracks, where they lay while an oncoming train slammed on its emergency brakes.

Two cars of the train passed over the two men with two inches to spare. Neither was hurt. Wow.
