Ex-NFL Lineman Brandon Bair is now being praised as a hero after he acted quickly to save a man from a fiery vehicle crash.

The man’s semi was engulfed in flames after it was hit by a train.

As Fox News reports:

The incident occurred in St. Anthony, Idaho, on Thursday evening. Steven Jenson was the man pinned inside the truck after it had been hit. Bair detailed his actions to East Idaho News.

“I was on Highway 20 driving to my business when I saw the train hit the truck. There was an explosion right away, and the train was pushing the truck down the tracks,” Bair said. “I got on the phone with 911 and started driving down the median to get to the front of the train when it stopped.”

According to the outlet, Bair ran toward the fiery wreck and was able to somehow pull the 25-year-old man from the truck.

“It was a conscious decision that I’m going in because he needs help right now,” Bair told East Idaho News. “I ran up to the window and saw dripping hot flames all over inside of the truck. I could see a guy in a seatbelt and was able to reach in and get it off of him. He was talking, and I told him we had to get out of here now.

The man reportedly survived and is now in fair condition.
