The actor sprung into action to save a man from a burning car.

 

Jamie Foxx doesn’t look at himself as a hero, but many others do after hearing about how the actor sprung into action to save a man from a burning car.

Foxx saved Brett Kyle‘s life on Monday evening, HuffPo reports. Kyle crashed his 2007 Toyota Tacoma around 8:30 p.m. in front of the actor’s home in Hidden Valley, California. The 32-year-old was unconscious when Foxx and another man – who hasn’t been identified – sprung into action to remove Kyle from the burning vehicle.

Foxx explained how quickly the incident happened.

ABC7 reports:

The two broke the car window using EMT scissors, cut the seat belt and pulled Kyle out to safety. “I grabbed the scissors from him, cut the seatbelt,” Foxx said. “As we pulled him out, within five seconds later, the truck goes up (in flames).”

Kyle was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for burns, a broken collarbone, and a punctured lung. The man’s father, Brad Kyle, met with Foxx on Tuesday to thank him for his efforts.

Via Huffington Post:

“I think we all hope that we can do something when the time is there. But the question is do we act or do we fear our own lives, and he did not,” said Brad Kyle. “[Foxx] was here when he needed to be here. He was here for my son. And as far as I am concerned, he saved his life.”

Foxx posted a special moment the two shared:

Met the father of the young man from last night today. This is all that matters. That a man, a son, a brother's life was spared last night. God had his arms wrapped around all of us…No heroes…Just happy fathers.

Shortly after Kyle was taken to the hospital, he was arrested for a DUI, which investigators believe caused the crash.
