UPDATE: Jamie Foxx has broken his silence about his outrageously selfless act
from last night. Speaking with ABC 7 News, the actor explains, "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
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

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 Kyle's father, Brad, also spoke with ABC, and through tears 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."
He later shared a picture of their meeting via Instagram.

Jamie Foxx is much more than a law abiding citizen—he's a hero.
The 48-year-old Oscar winner leaped to a stranger's rescue Monday night in
California, his rep confirmed to E! News.
According to California Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Brett Kyle 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, rolled over multiple times and landed on the
passenger side engulfed in flames.
While Kyle was trapped inside the car, two witnesses near the scene—including
Foxx—ran to the blazing site to help free the trapped driver. The actor grabbed a
rescue tool from his vehicle, which allowed the witnesses to break the window, cut
the seat belt and get Kyle out alive.
Immediately after, fire and medical emergency personnel arrived to the scene. Kyle
was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and was taken to the
hospital to treat his injuries.

The Grammy winner has not flaunted his personal heroics since the crash,
remaining silent about the event on all of his social media.
During his most recent public event, Foxx took the podium at the 2016 Golden
Globe Awards to introduce his stunning daughter Corinne Bishop as Miss Golden
Globe.
Judging from these hasty heroics, Jamie is definitely one cool dad.

Bravo Mr Foxx! Thanks for being a real life hero for that family and a role
model for millions. You could have gone on a huge ego trip, but your
humility and humbleness speaks volumes. Much respect to you sir.
Unfortunately too many people turn to their phones to record tragedy
instead of trying to prevent it. May this serve as a reminder that we are all
humans and need to help one another.
