Here is more on this story:
A Northern California man is being hailed a hero after he saved a wheelchair-bound elderly woman, stuck on the tracks, from being struck by an on-coming train.
Samuel Huffman, 20, was driving Saturday night when he noticed Marguerite Jones, 82, lying on Union Pacific Railroad tracks at Locust Street in Lodi, officials said.
Jones said she was crossing the tracks when her motorized wheelchair tipped over, causing her to fall off.
Huffman pulled Jones from the tracks just seconds before the train roared by.
