NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) – A New Jersey Transit engineer saved a dog Tuesday morning roaming the train tracks in Newark.
NJ Transit placed a picture of the happy but dirty puppy.
Officials say that engineer Anthony Guzman saw the animal near Newark while working on the Morris & Essex line.
The 18-year-old veteran engineer stopped the train to the east, climbed down and grabbed the dog.
He brought it to the Secaucus station.
The crews work to reunite the dog with its owners.
This was the second time in the last six months that train staff saw a dog in distress on a busy railroad.
NJ Transit conductor Howard Kempton made a similar rescue in October last year when he saw a dog on the track in East Orange.
That dog, named Shelby, was eventually reunited with his owners.
