Jamie Foxx speaks out on rescue

Jamie Foxx had to cut a man free from his burning car on Monday (18.01.16).

The 48-year-old star dashed to the rescue of 32-year-old Brett Kyle when he crashed his car outside the actor's home and he has now spoken out about the dramatic incident.

Jamie told ABC News: "He has EMT scissors. He hits the glass, I climb in and try to hit his seat belt, but he's hovered over, so the seat belt is on him.

"So I grabbed the scissors from him, cut the seat belt, but it's on his neck. So I cut it off his neck.

"And then, as the flames do come into the cabin, I lean back, but I think what it did is it hit his legs, which made him extend.

"And when he extends out of the cabin, pull him out, and as we pull him out, within five seconds later, the truck goes up."

Brett's father Brad has spoken about the 'Ray' star's heroics, admitting he can't "fathom" the actor's bravery.

He tearfully said: "It doesn't matter to me who it was, or what they do for a living, or whatever.

"Just the idea that someone would do that is so much more than I can fathom. it's all tears of joy.

"He's got two sisters and a brother, they would've lost their brother if it wasn't for him."

According to California Highway Patrol, Brett was driving at "a high rate of speed" when his car drove into a drainage ditch in the road, collided with a drainage pipe and concrete, causing the vehicle to roll over multiple times and burst into flames.

The driver was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and taken to hospital to treat his injuries.
