    Caltrain officials on Thursday honored two sheriff's deputies who pulled a man out of a car mere seconds before a train slammed into it.

    Lance Whitted and Erik Rueppel received certificates of recognition at Caltrain’s monthly board meeting for saving a suspected drunk driver’s life on Aug. 3 before a train plowed into his car, which was stuck on the tracks in Sunnyvale.

    Caltrain also recognized Redwood City station security guard Dell Thompson who coaxed a suicidal woman off the tracks and out of harm's way.
