A California transit worker is giving God all the glory after saving a man from an oncoming train.

Fox News reports that Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) supervisor John O’Connor was working at the Coliseum station assisting with crowd control after an Oakland Raiders game on Nov. 3.

O’Connor noticed a man walking too close to the edge of the platform, then fall onto the tracks as a train was quickly approaching.

“I just looked and was like, he’s not going to make it,” O’Connor said. “So I’ve got to do something. There wasn’t a lot of time to think.”

O’Connor reached down and pulled the man up and onto the platform, moments before the train would have hit him.

“In my mind, it all went down in slow motion. I just grabbed him and pulled him out.”

“I’m just fortunate that God put me there,” O’Connor said. “And he got to see another day. And when I spoke with him later, I said, ‘Hey, just pay it forward.'”
