Jamie Foxx Heroically Pulls Man From Burning Vehicle, Swears He’s No Hero

On Monday night, a man who was reported to have been under he influence was driving a vehicle that became engulfed in flames after a collision. Luckily, the accident that caused the fire took place near the home of Academy award-winning actor and Grammy award-winning musician Jamie Foxx.

Foxx, according to his representatives and police reports from the scene, pulled the allegedly intoxicated driver from his truck with the help of another unidentified citizen. Later identified as Brett Kyle, the driver sustained head, neck, and chest trauma and was eventually arrested for drunk driving, according to ABC News

Through all of the ensuing media hype and even after meeting the family of the man he saved, Foxx has maintained that he is not special in any way for what he did. “I’m not a hero, but I had to do something,” he explained.

Kyle’s family would probably disagree.
