Jamie Foxx has played plenty of heroes on the big screen. Monday night he played one in real life.
The Oscar winner helped rescue a man whose pickup truck crashed and caught fire in front of Foxx’s home.
Foxx and an off-duty EMT cut Kyle out of his seat belt and dragged him out of the pickup.
Brett Kyle, 32, was driving his Toyota Tacoma “at a high rate of speed” in Moorpark, a town in Ventura County, California, when the truck left the road, traveled into a drainage ditch and rolled over multiple times, according to a statement from California Highway Patrol Officer Marco Marin.
The truck landed on its passenger side and caught fire with Kyle still inside.
“As I’m getting him out, I said, ‘You’ve got to help me get you out because I don’t want to have to leave you,’ ” Foxx told CNN affiliate KCAL. “I said, ‘You’ve angels around you.'”
