Burning car

Internationally: Jamie Foxx saves man from burning car outside his California home

Actor Jamie Foxx has been praised for saving a man who was trapped in a burning truck.

Brett Kyle's pick-up went off the road and rolled over into a ditch close to Foxx's California home.

Foxx said the truck became engulfed in flames "within five seconds" after he got the driver out.

"I don't look at it as heroic", he told reporters, "I just look at it like, you know, you just had to do something. And it all just worked out.''

The Oscar-winning actor said he heard the crash from his house and called 911 before running to the scene.
