A Georgia officer said he realized he barely got out with his life after seeing body-cam video of a train striking him as he was running after a suspect linked to a burglary. Polk County Police Officer Andy Anderson was wearing the body cam when the train struck him in Rockmart on Tuesday, according to reports. The collision broke six of his ribs, his elbow and his shoulder. Anderson also suffered a concussion. “When Andy saw the video, he told me he was lucky to be alive and I told him, yeah, the good Lord was looking out for you that day,” Police Chief Kenny Dodd told Fox 5 Atlanta.
