Man Saves Couple Stranded at Rail Crossing

  • Photo
AMES, Iowa (AP) A 38-year-old Iowa bank worker is being hailed as a hero for pushing an elderly couple's stalled car from a railroad crossing seconds before a train whizzed by.

Chris Ihle told The Des Moines Register that he had just parked his motorcycle at work Wednesday when he noticed a Pontiac Bonneville that seemed stuck at the Ames crossing with a train bearing down.

Ihle says he screamed at the couple to move but they didn't, so he tried pushing the car forward but it wouldn't budge. He moved to the car's front, told the driver to make sure it was in neutral, dug in his cowboy boots and heaved.

Ihle pushed the car about 5 feet to safety seconds before the train screeched by. It missed the father of three by inches.
