Iconic Hollywood actor Danny Trejo has just proved that he is more than capable of doing his own real-life stunts after he witnessed a car crash earlier this week.
Trejo, who is best known for his roles in Heat, Con Air, Breaking Bad, and Desperado, was driving through Los Angeles when he watched a woman accidentally speed through a red light and collide with another car.
The 75-year-old actor immediately jumped out of his own vehicle and rushed to the family trapped inside of the overturned car.
Upon approaching the vehicle, Trejo says that the woman was calling for bystanders to help her young special needs son who was still strapped into his car seat.
Trejo and another bystander then pulled the door open and managed to free the youngster from his seatbelt.
As firefighters and first responders rushed to the scene to rescue the mother and grandmother who were still trapped inside the car, Trejo brought the boy away from the scene of the crash and kept him distracted until his family members were freed.
Trejo later told KABC that he was able to form a comforting connection with the boy based on his past experience with special needs kids.
“He was panicked. I said OK, we have to use our superpowers. So he screamed ‘superpowers’ and we started yelling ‘superpowers,” Trejo told the news outlet. “I said do this, with the muscles. He said ‘muscles.’ We got kind of a bond.”
Thankfully, the Los Angeles Fire Department said that no one suffered any life-threatening injuries from the collision, although Trejo is now being hailed as a hero for his quick intervention.
