  1. She is a hero! BUT I wonder if the man purposely left himself on the tracks to die since there isn’t any REAL right to die laws in the United States. So many decent people have to resort to brutal ways to end their lives WHEN THEY WISH TO because this country likes to watch people suffer, lose dignity, and grab as much money from them as they can.

  2. What a heroic officer. I use a power wheelchair & would have died had I been stuck on RR tracks. This officer deserves a medal 🎖and thanks from all of us disabled citizens.

  3. I cannot even imagine how scared that poor man was literally hearing that train coming to kill him and he was saved just as he thought he was going to die. The cop was heroic 💪🏼

  4. Hero for saving his life yes. But this is a perfect reason women are not the same as man, if it was a male officer he would not have struggle in removing the elderly man from the track .

  5. Everyone says the cops never do anything good. Officer Urrea showed heroism and courage in the true face of danger. Lets give credit where its due…….

  6. THIS is where one of those "HERO'SWORK HERE" signs is appropriate! Not all the other places that they're popping up where people are just doing their normal jobs. HUGE KUDOS to the officer!!!! Thank you
