DPS trooper saves man’s life by dragging him out of a car being approached by a high speed train
Henry (Hank) Roanhorse, an Arizona DPS trooper, is being credited with saving the life of a man who was lying unconscious in his car on a railroad track. Roanhorse managed to pull him out mere seconds before the car got hit by a speeding train.
Roanhorse was driving home when he spotted the car. He approached the vehicle and found the 56-year-old driver, Sampson Whitegoat, unconscious behind the wheel. Whitegoat smelled strongly of alcohol.
Roanhorse was able to pull Whitegoat from the vehicle — despite Whitegoat, who had regained consciousness, fighting against him — and dragged his 300-pound frame about 25 feet from the tracks. Seconds later, the train collided with the car and threw it 150 feet.
