    All I can say to that is WOW! That man was really lucky so have been saved like that. It must have been an awful sight to see.

    I noticed that when they got the guy out from underneath the car that they just walked away. It seems the bystanders should have pulled him further away from the heat and what police were spraying.

    It shows that many Americans still care and don't walk by with blinders on saying it's not my problem. Kudos for that brave group of people. I hope this video encourages other to get involved.
