Jamie Foxx Speaks on Saving Man From A Burning Car

Jamie Foxx is truly a real life hero. On Monday night, a devastating occurrence happened right in front of his very own eyes - a man, stuck in a burning car after a tragedy that took place in California.

According to the Highway Patrol officer, 32-year-old Brett Kyle was driving at a rather "high rate of speed" when his car was driven into a ditch in the road, to then collide with a drainage pipe and concrete, rolling over multiple times and landing on the passenger side, engulfed in flames.


Brett Kyle was in this car. Stuck. Two witnesses near the scene, one of which being Jamie Foxx, sprinted over to the scene to help the trapped driver. Foxx grabbed a rescue tool from his vehicle, which helped the two witnesses shatter open the window, cut the seat belt and get the victim out.

The actor has stayed silent about the incident until recently, stating "He has EMT scissors. He hits the glass, I climb in and try to hit his seat belt, but he's hovered over, so the seat belt is on him. So I grabbed the scissors from him, cut the seat belt, but it's on his neck. So I cut it off his neck. And then, as the flames do come into the cabin, I lean back, but I think what it did is it hit his legs, which made him extend. And when he extends out of the cabin, pull him out, and as we pull him out, within five seconds later, the truck goes up."

"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. "I said, 'You've angels around you.' I don't look at it as heroic. I just look at it as... you just had to do something. It all worked out."


Brett's father, Brad, then spoke to the press, "It doesn't matter to me who it was, or what they do for a living, or whatever. Just the idea that someone would do that is so much more than I can fathom. it's all tears of joy. He's got two sisters and a brother, they would've lost their brother if it wasn't for him."
