Jamie Foxx Helped Rescue a Man from a Burning Truck
Jamie Foxx helped save a man from a burning pickup truck, after he wrecked in front of Jamie’s house outside L.A. Monday night. Jamie heard the crash and called 911, then ran outside. 32-year-old Brett Kyle had been speeding and lost control on the wet road, driving into a drainage ditch and rolling his pickup several times. The truck came to rest on the passenger side, and it was on fire. Another bystander had a pair of EMT scissors, which they used to break the window, cut the seat-belt, and pull Kyle out. Unfortunately, Kyle was drunk, so he was arrested and taken to the hospital for treatment. Kyle’s father paid a very emotional visit to Jamie, thanking him for saving his sons life. Get more here.
