Real life hero! Jamie Foxx rescues man from burning car crash scene

by

Oscar winning actor Jamie Foxx saved a life yesterday after he pulled a man from a crash scene outside his home yesterday. 

The 48-year-old turned into a full-on action hero yesterday after he witnessed a pick-up truck roll over several times before bursting into flames following a collision. 

Jamie managed to call 911 before rushing out to the scene that had taken place outside his Los Angeles home and unbuckled the driver to remove him from the burning vehicle. 

A handy man to have in a sticky situation we say. 

Police later confirmed that two people helped at the scene and the Django Unchained actor was identified as one. 

"Jamie didn’t hesitate. He jumped out and ran to the car," said a witness. 

The driver was taken to hospital and survived the collision with some injuries and burns. He is believed to have been later arrested for possible drink driving. 

"Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver," read the official police statement. 

"One of the witnesses retrieved a rescue tool from his vehicle allowing the two citizens to break the window, cut the seat belt, and extricate the driver."

Yeah seriously, he may have played the villain in the Spiderman but we reckon Jamie should be cast as the superhero asap.
