Hollywood legend Danny Trejo (75) rescues baby trapped in overturned vehicle

Actor Danny Trejo helps save baby trapped in car

However, Trejo alleges one of the drivers ran a red light. The Machete actor was present at the ideal place when two vehicles crashed on a Wednesday afternoon.

"I got into the auto, but I couldn't unbuckle the seatbelt". "He was panicked. I said OK, we have to use our superpowers".

Trejo tried to open the back door to get to the child but couldn't because it was smashed.

Trejo then distracted the boy from the scene, keeping him calm as firefighters worked to rescue his grandmother from the wreckage.

'We ripped that door open and I reached in and climbed in the vehicle to get the baby; he was panicking, ' he said.

Trejo, who has appeared in TV shows such as Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine Nine, and Sons of Anarchy was walking in Los Angeles when he witnessed a vehicle accident unfold right before his eyes. Trejo and a bystander acted swiftly, reaching through broken windows to unbuckle the boy's auto seat and set him free-because that's just what heroes do. The actor, alongside another bystander, helped free the boy from the auto.

"Everything great that has transpired has occurred as an immediate outcome of helping another person", Trejo disclosed to CNN partner KABC.

Trejo said he and the child "got kind of a bond".

Trejo stayed with the boy after he was freed until his grandmother was pulled to safety by rescue workers.

A city fire department spokeswoman confirmed that two cars collided at the intersection in question, that one overturned, and that three people were transported from the scene, but was unable to furnish further details.

"The only thing that saved that little kid was his vehicle seat".

Trejo has been acting since 1985 and has appeared in hundreds of roles.

Outside of his film career, Trejo owns several successful restaurants: Trejo's Tacos, Trejo's Cantina, and Trejo's Coffee & Donuts.
