San Francisco Police Department(SAN FRANCISCO) — A San Francisco man said he saw his life flash before his eyes during a terrifying fight with an armed home invader in his garage — grabbing the suspect’s gun and slapping away his knife in an incident captured on stunning video footage.

Bill Oxidean, a father of two, was in his garage when he says he was attacked by a man with a gun last Monday, he told ABC News on Monday.

“Suddenly I saw a guy walking up the street that didn’t look good at all,” Oxidean, 41, told ABC News. “As I brought my trash can in he ran into the garage and attacked me.”

The entire encounter was caught on video, beginning when the suspect, dressed in a gray hoodie, ran up behind Oxidean. The video was released by the San Francisco Police Department.

“He came in big and bold, full force,” Oxidean said. Oxidean said the suspect was a stranger.

The fight moved across the garage, and Oxidean was eventually able to get his attacker on the ground. Oxidean said he also slapped a knife away from the suspect during the struggle.

Oxidean said he then got on top of the suspect, grabbed the gun and ran from the garage.

The victim said it was “hard work and determination” that allowed him to get the gun.

“I fought that guy down,” he said. “I turned around and tried to shoot him with it, but the gun was jammed.”

Oxidean suffered minor injuries, but said he “saw my life flash before my eyes” during the attack. “It was a movie I didn’t want to star in.”

The suspect, who remained at large as of Monday, fled the scene on foot, Officer Grace Gatpandan of the San Francisco Police Department told ABC News.

A gun and knife were taken from the scene, Gatpandan said.

The suspect is described as between 23- and 27 years old, about 5-foot-10 and 150 pounds, Gatpandan said. Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD.

Mario Tama/Getty Images(NORTHFIELD, Vt.) — An Amtrak passenger said he heard a “really heavy thud” as the train derailed over an embankment in Northfield, Vermont, Monday morning, sending seven people to the hospital.

“The car was shaking from side to side and I could tell something was going off the tracks,” Ian Turpin, 24, from Brooklyn, New York, told ABC News.

Then the train screeched to a halt, he said.

Train 55 — the Vermonter — was traveling from Saint Albans, Vermont, to Washington, D.C., when it derailed after striking a rock slide on the tracks, Amtrak said.

Seven people were hospitalized, officials said.

Amtrak said there were no immediate reports of any life-threatening injuries.

Gov. Peter Shumlin said the rail is safe, calling the Vermonter “a great train line.” Officials said there was no reason to believe there was any negligence; the track was recently rebuilt and state of the art.

The engineer has not yet been interviewed, officials said.

Investigators from the Federal Railroad Administration were sent to the scene.

Turpin said the uninjured passengers were bused to a nearby university.

This accident comes just five months after an Amtrak train derailed near Philadelphia, killing eight people.

ABC News(ROSEBURG, Ore.) — A student who survived the deadly shooting at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College by pretending to be dead told ABC News about the events on that fateful day.

“I could hear everyone breathing hard and freaking out and crying,” Anastasia Boylan, 18, said. “And he [the gunman] asked everyone to move to the center of the classroom, so we all kind of army-crawled to the center.”

Boylan said she didn’t think she was going to make it.

“Last thing I remembered praying was that my family and my loved ones and that the family and loved ones of my peers would somehow know that we’re all OK,” she said, “and that they could somehow find peace.”

From her wheelchair inside the Oregon hospital that helped save her from a gunshot wound to the back, Boylan recounted the terrifying nine minutes inside the Roseburg school last Thursday, when gunman Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, opened fire, killing nine people before shooting himself to death.

Boylan said he even spoke to them. “He sounded really deranged,” she said, “because he said he had been waiting to do that for a really long time and he laughed.”

The shooter picked out one student specifically to be the one who would live to tell the tale, she added.

“He said, ‘The kid in the glasses, get up. I need you to do me a favor. Today’s your lucky day,’ and hands him this like business envelope.”

Boylan also said the man had a question for each of his victims.

“He had us all get up one by one and asked us what our religions were,” Boylan said.

One student was shot when said his religion. “The shooter said that he would only feel pain for a couple of seconds and that he would be with God soon and then he shot him,” Boylan recalled.

Boylan played dead as the suspect called out to her and kept her eyes shut. And then it was over.

“All of a sudden I heard that one kid in my class say that he was dead, ‘He’s dead, he’s shot in the head, everything’s OK.’ I didn’t want to open my eyes. I did and I looked around the classroom and it was horrible. It was the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
