The 89-year-old woman was crossing a set of tracks after the railroad crossing warning signals had already come down when Jonathan Mango, 28, and an unidentified Good Samaritan rushed to her aid, helping her off the tracks just before the train passed.

“I saw the train was really coming. I sprinted onto the tracks, and I pulled her by the arm,” Mango said. “She actually stopped because she was scared, so then I tried grabbing her arm and then really tried pulling her. She was having a lot of trouble.”

An ambulance was called to the scene, although the woman refused medical treatment.

“The woman is always walking through our community and in all types of weather conditions attracting many to gaze and many others to offer assistance,” Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said in a statement. “She certainly had the angels watching over her today and the two individuals, angels themselves without a doubt, saved her from this near disaster.”
