Dramatic video shows a Richmond, Texas police officer risking his life to save a woman who was sitting on railroad tracks.

The images show the warning lights flashing and the gates lowering early Sunday morning just as Officer Ramon Morales pulls up to the scene.

The woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
