Jamie Foxx Saves Man
The “unpredictable,” triple-threat actor, singer, and dancer Jamie Foxx can now add another title to his repertoire, the title of “Hero.”
After an impaired and speeding driver named Brett Kyle, was traveling along a Hidden Valley California road, he swerved hitting a drainage ditch. The impact caused the car to flip several times before coming to rest and bursting into flames in front of a large luxury home. As fate would have it, it happened to be the home of the famous movie star Jamie Foxx. The actor, who was at home at the time heard the commotion outside and realized what had just happened, he undoubtedly knew someone was in need of help.
Foxx courageously ran over to the scene and began to help get the man out. He recalls “As I was getting him out, I told him you need to help me get you out, I don’t want to leave you” assuring him, “you definitely have angels around you.”
“I just had to do something, and thankfully it all worked out,” Foxx told CNN. Ventura County Fire Department Officials told reporters that the man survived, “and was taken to the hospital for the treatment of burn injuries.” The collision report from Los Robles Medical Center documented that the man had “major head, chest, neck, and waist trauma.”
The driver was arrested after being released from the hospital from his injuries for driving under the influence. The man’s father is just grateful Foxx was there thankful his son was alive. In an instagram post the next day Foxx said, “I met the father of the young man from last night today. This is all that matters. 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.”
The Father, Brad Kelly, came by the next day to see the scene of the accident and was allowed inside the actors home to view security footage. With tears in his eyes he told reporters, “I just kept watching it, saying my God, my God, he didn’t have to do a thing”
Kelly told CNN, “What matters in these type of situations is whether we act, calling Foxx, his sons Guardian Angel” Foxx however, says “he is just humbled by the whole situation.”
