Jamie Foxx Heroically Saves a Life

The 48-year-old actor is a real life a hero after rescuing a man from a burning car. The wreck happened near his California home on Monday night.

According to California Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Brett Kyle was driving at “a high rate of speed” when his car drove into a drainage ditch in the road, collided with a drainage pipe and concrete, rolled over multiple times and landed on the passenger side engulfed in flames, reports E! News.

Witnesses tell TMZ that Foxx told CHP officers he heard the accident, ran to the scene and saw the driver buckled into his seat. Fearing the burning car would explode, Jamie told cops he unbuckled the man and dragged him about 30 feet away from the accident. Jamie called 911 before his heroics; cops and firefighters eventually arrived on the scene and transported the victim to a hospital with major injuries, including burns.

Whaaaaat?!?! We all know he is an amazing guy but this goes above and beyond. Jamie Foxx is an amazing human being. Instead of an Oscar, someone give this guy a Nobel Peace Prize.
