Dramatic footage as policeman saves man from oncoming train

A POLICE officer in Colombia has dramatically saved the life of man attempting to throw himself in front of an oncoming train in Medellin.

CCTV footage shows a man in a white T-shirt standing on the edge of a platform waiting for an approaching train.

As the train pulls into the station, he begins to step out in front of it.

But the police officer reacts quickly to grab him by the shirt and pull him to safety seconds before the train passes.

The incident happened earlier this month in Medellin.
