Three good Samaritans raced to save a man who was stuck on some railroad tracks in St. Louis.

The man was in a wheelchair and seen struggling to free himself as a train approached.

A woman and her brother started filming when they were stopped at the railroad crossing and noticed someone running toward the tracks.

The rescuers were able to pull the man to safety just before the train sped past.

The man was taken to the hospital as a precaution but is said to be doing fine.
