ST. LOUIS — The good Samaritan who pulled a driver from a burning car met the man's grateful family two hours after the daring rescue.
Antonio Morgan jumped from his car to help Kielen Robinson, 23, who was trapped in a burning car along Interstate 70, KMOV reported.
“I am pulling. He’s not coming. I saw his seat belt. The smoke was right there in my face. I unhooked his seat belt and pulled him out,” Morgan said. “That last pull I was out of energy. I was rushing. My adrenaline was rushing.”
Another man ran over and used a fire extinguisher to stop the flames.
Morgan met Robinson's mother, Kim Johnson, about two hours later.
“If he would not have been persistent and stuck on that, my son would be dead right now and I would be planning a funeral,” Johnson said. “My guardian angel saved my baby. This man, hallelujah, thank you, Jesus.”
Robinson, who was not badly hurt, is recovering from his injuries, KMOV reported.
