Jamie Foxx Saves a Life, Denies Being a Hero

Jamie Foxx has restored our faith in humanity.  

The Oscar winner saved Brett Kyle, 32, from being burned in a car crash.

At around 8:30pm local time on January 18th, the car skidded on a wet road in Hidden Valley, a town northeast of Los Angeles.  It then hit a ditch and flipped over in front of Foxx's property.  

The star reacted quickly, first calling 911 and then going to see if Kyle was ok. When Foxx realized he was unconscious and slumped over, he felt the car and knew that it would soon go up in flames.  

So, Foxx broke through the car window, cut off the seatbelt and was able to drag Kyle to safety before it was too late.

Foxx humbly recounted his heroic efforts, explaining step-by-step what he did and what he saw in the car.  

"I don't look at it as heroic, I look at it as I just had to do something," Foxx told NBC4 News of what he did.

"I said 'you got angels around you.' "

The victim's father got emotional as he thanked Foxx for saving his son's life.

"it doesn't matter to me who it was or what they do for a living," Brett Kyle told news crews.

"Just the idea that someone would do that, is so much more than I can fathom."

Foxx posted an Instagram of himself with Brad after the accident.

Met the father of the young man from last night today. This is all that matters," Foxx wrote.

"That a man, a son, a brother's life was spared last night. God had his arms wrapped around all of us...No heroes...Just happy fathers."
