ARDMORE, OK--   A woman's life was spared when she was found stalled on railroad tracks by a fireman.

It happened before 6 a.m. Monday morning. A woman who wishes to remain unidentified, was found in her car on the railroad tracks at C Street and 1st Street Southwest in Ardmore.

That's when Ardmore Fire Department Shift Commander Darin Butler was responding to another call and saw the car which appeared to be stranded.

Butler investigated and found a woman that according to police reports was intoxicated. Butler got the woman out of her car in enough time to avoid getting hit by an oncoming train.

Before removing the woman from her car Butler turned on his emergency lights which alerted the train conductor to stop using his emergency breaks. According to Butler the woman involved in the rescue is doing fine.
