Shocking Video Shows Man Pulling Driver From Burning Car
Shocking footage has been shared showing the moment a driver was saved from a burning car.
The car had crashed into another vehicle, with the driver trapped inside.
At first, Mr Angulo didn't realise the driver was trapped, and called for him to get out. But when he got no response, the Good Samaritan and another bystander rushed over to the car door and pulled the stranger to safety.
Speaking to WSVN about the incident, Mr Angulo said: "The guy was in complete shock. It was just get the guy out. That's all that mattered really, you know?
"What clicked was I looked to the left, and I looked to the right, and I saw 20 people with their cellphones not doing nothing, and I said, 'It's on me'.
"He was like, 'I can't, I can't. It's too hot, It's too hot. I can't get out. I can't get out'."
As the blaze encased the truck, Mr Angulo and another man were able to get the driver out of the car, pulling him through the window and out to safety.

Mr Angulo added: "His leg was all burned. His hands were all burned. You can tell it was blisters. He was burnt up pretty good."
The driver was then taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries, along with another person. At the time of writing, their conditions were not known.
But despite his heroics, Mr Angulo was clear that he didn't feel like he was special, he was just one person trying to help another in their moment of need.
He added: "If I were in that same situation, I hope someone would do the same thing for me," he said. "It's that simple."
Last year, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx pulled a man from a burning car.
A Toyota Tacoma hit a ditch outside the 48-year-old's house in Los Angeles' Hidden Valley, flipped over and burst into flames.
Foxx saw the burning wreck and quickly realised the driver was still strapped into his seat. Without hesitating, he unbuckled the man and dragged him around 30 feet away from the scene for fear the car may explode.
The actor's rep confirmed the incident to ABC News, saying: "Jamie didn't hesitate. He jumped out and ran to the car."
