Actor Danny Trejo and another good Samaritan rescued a child with special needs who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, according to the Washington Post.
Trejo kept the child calm, as firefighters worked to free him.
“I said, ‘We have to use our superpowers.’ So he screamed, ‘superpowers,’ and we started yelling ‘superpowers’ back and forth to each other. I told him to flex with his muscles, and he said, ‘muscles.’ I just kept the ‘superpowers’ game going and he flexed until we got away from there. I kept facing him away from what was going on.”
Trejo, who is known for playing villains in blockbusters like ‘Con Air’, ‘Machete’, ‘Desperado’, and ‘Heat’, said he was thankful that he was able to help the child.
“Things are so complicated right now that people have to understand that God put us on this Earth to help each other,” Trejo said. “If you look at Earth today, we’re on the Titanic, looking for a good seat. We are here to serve, we are here to welcome, we are here to love. That’s what we’re supposed to be doing. I’m just thankful to God because He let me do that today.”
Trejo added, “Everything good that has happened to me has happened as a direct result of helping someone else.”
