'Machete' Star Danny Trejo Climbs Into Overturned Car to Rescue Trapped Boy With Special Needs

Playing 'Machete' Star Danny Trejo Rescues Boy Trapped in Car Following Crash

Danny Trejo is best known for playing the villain, but he is a hero in real life after he rescued a child. 

The 75-year-old “Machete” actor came to the rescue Wednesday after two cars T-boned at a Los Angeles intersection.

One of the vehicles, a grey SUV, flipped upside down. Just like a scene from one of his action movies, Trejo ran into harm’s way to help.

A little boy with special needs and his grandmother were trapped inside. The boy was strapped in a car seat and Trejo climbed into the mangled metal. With the help another good Samaritan, the two worked as a team to free the child.

“I had to crawl through the window. I couldn’t get the baby out,” he told OnScene.TV. "The only thing that saved that little kid was his car seat."

Once freed, the grandma and the boy give Trejo a well-deserved hug and a thank you before being taken to the hospital to be cared for.
