It was no stunt for an upcoming movie when one of Hollywood’s best-known villains, Danny Trejo heroically came to the rescue of a baby who was trapped in an overturned vehicle in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The actor jumped into action after witnessing two vehicles crash, causing one to rollover. The overturned vehicle which was sitting on its roof still had a baby strapped into a car seat inside.

Trejo said he tried crawling in through a broken window but could not get the seat belt unhooked. With the help of another bystander, Monica Jackson, he was however able to free the child.

“The only thing that saved the little kid was his car seat,” Trejo was reported to have told a photographer on the scene.

The Los Angeles Fire Department told CNN affiliate, KABC that three people were taken to an hospital but that their injuries were not life threatening.

“Everything good that has happened to me has happened as a direct result of helping someone else. Everything,” Trejo told KABC.
