The moment a group of Good Samaritans helped rescue a man from a burning car in Texas was all caught on video.
The unidentified man had been driving on State Highway 288 in Pearland when his car slid across the highway and struck a tree after veering off the road on Sunday, ABC News reported.
Most of the rescuers left before police could get their names, but Nick Villalona told KTRK that he was “just doing the right thing at the right time.”
After seeing the car in flames, Villalona drove up to it and tried to pull the door opened, but it appeared to be locked, he said. Another bystander had a wooden club, which Villalona used to break over the driver’s side window.
“I just swung for the fences,” he said.
Once the glass shattered, Villalona said he and the other a handful of other people were able to pull the driver out.
Video shows multiple people surrounding the burning car as they attempt to get the driver out. The witness who filmed it shared it with KTRK.
Police said it’s “not uncommon” for area residents to “go out of their way to help others.”
The driver suffered a few broken bones but is expected to be okay, paramedics who responded to the scene said. He was transported to the scene after the hospital.
