Reports say that the accident happened right outside his mansion in Los Angeles, California.

Foxx heard a crash and immediately ran down to see what was going on. He saw a car that was tumbled over with a man trapped inside.

The car was reported to be speeding and fell in a ditch, tumbled over several times and caught fire.

As Jamie rushed to the scene and told the man “You gotta help me pull you out. I don’t wanna leave you here” a car stopped along the road and went down to help. He was coincidentally an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) who happens to have a scissor which cut the seatbelt off so Jamie could pull the man out.

The father of the man he saved came to Jamie’s house and thanked him, saying to the reporters

“He didn’t have to do a thing. I think we all hope that we could do something when the time is there. But the question is, do we? Do we act or do we fear our own lives? and he did not” 

Wow, Jamie Foxx just earned my respect x infinity.

Do you think his act was heroic or was it just being human?
