Danny Trejo: Real Life Hero –
August 8, 2019 – Trejo crawled into the overturned wreckage from one side, he recalled, but he couldn’t unbuckle the child’s car seat from that angle. The other bystander, a young woman, crawled in from the other side of the overturned vehicle and was able to undo the buckle. Trejo was then able to get the baby out of the car seat and pulled safely from the wreckage.
While that was happening, the boy’s grandmother remained trapped in the driver’s seat. Firefighters had to use equipment to free her. Trejo says while the firefighters were working to free the woman, he was trying to distract the boy from the scene. He said he works with special-needs children so he knew how to keep the little boy calm. “He was panicked. I said OK, we have to use our superpowers.
