NEW YORK (WKRC) - It sounds like a scene from a movie, but it was a real-life experience for New York resident Janice Esposito.

According to a report by WCBS, Esposito was in a car crash late Tuesday night that sent her car onto nearby railroad tracks with an oncoming train approaching.

Esposito was rescued by a volunteer firefighter, Pete DiPinto, who heard the crash from his home. He ran to the scene and pulled Esposito from her car just seconds before the train smashed into it.

Less than 24 hours later the two shared a heartwarming reunion as Esposito got the chance to thank DiPinto.
