Actor Jamie Foxx tells story of rescuing man from burning vehicle

Jamie Foxx talked to reporters yesterday (Tuesday) about the fiery crash in front of Foxx’s home Monday and the actor’s efforts to rescue a man trapped inside the vehicle.

KABC-TV:

Foxx said he heard the crash, called 911 and then he rushed down to the scene. The truck was already on its side and on fire. The door was locked, and the window was up.

With help from another man, Foxx pulled Kyle out of the burning wreckage. 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).”
