A few things to remember here: you should never ever stop on the railway tracks at a red light. Portland's transit authority also says the trains go very slow through the intersections, so the conductor would have stopped his train if he thought he would hit anyone, but we're still glad he didn't have to make that call.

Online, people are praising the four anonymous heroes for jumping into action.

Thank goodness these folks were in the right place at the right time! Luckily, there are still good people in this world willing to help each other out.
