Jamie Foxx Posts Emotional Pic After Saving Man’s Life


(AllHipHop News) Jamie Foxx is a hero. The Oscar winner rescued a man that who’s car caught afire in a blaze after the vehicle crashed outside of the Foxx’s mansion.

Brett Kyle, 32, was allegedly driving under the influence in Ventura County, California, when his pickup truck left the road, crashed in a drainage ditch and then rolled over several times, according to authorities.

The crash caused the car to burst into flames.

“As I’m getting him out, I said, ‘You’ve got to help me get you out because I don’t want to have to leave you,’ ” Foxx told KCAL. “I said, ‘You’ve angels around you.'”

The report said Foxx and an off-duty EMT managed to cut Kyle out of his seat belt and then removed him from the truck.

With Kyle’s father in tow, Foxx spoke to the media.

“I don’t look at it as heroic. I just look at it as … you just had to do something. It all worked out,” he said.

On Instagram, Foxx said,”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.”

    Well done, Jamie.

  • Q.

    DRUNK LIVES MATTER. (sheds tear)

    LOL No seriously, great story.

  • Ipullcards

    Good for him. But maybe if this guy wasn’t under the influence, this incident would of never happened, or maybe not. But if Jamiee Foxx dies trying to save a drunk? That would of been a horrible headline..

  • Anthony Mason

    Hey saving a life is saving a life. God does not look at it as saving a drunk. He did the right thing and glad the man is ok and alive….

  • Oopster

    • Larry Sandwiches

      I know what you mean, but this is a great story with a good ending. Foxx even downplayed his role in it.

        Word!

      • Controversy Sells

        Not only that but trust and believe this is on a couple news sites as well. Before that pic was even taken it was already being publicized not only for the accident but because the “hero” is famous. These folks complain about everything

  • takin over the carter

    thats good shit don don …..

  • Markus

    Good look. We’re a better society if we would all look out for one another.

  • I want to believe Jamie posted this outta love, but then we’re talking about Hollywood. Everyone has an angle. Good story but real heroes do sh*t without needing to tell the world about it.

    • Larry Sandwiches

      He made sure not to associate himself with “real heroes”

  • ursocalledgod

    if he was really just concerned and happy about saving a life and not the hero angle he wouldn’t of had these pics posted. come on man! we would of just read about this shyt later on down the road in some ” did you know” article.

    • Larry Sandwiches

      Regardless, he still pulled a dude out of a burning vehicle. Being cynical is easier tho, i guess…..

  • WeakSauce
