NEW YORK -- There was a happy reunion in Brooklyn as a 14-year-old boy met the cast and crew of a TV show that saved his life after an accident.

"Inside Edition" captured the reunion as the teenager thanked the heroes who saved him.

Back in November, the boy was pinned under a car that jumped the curb in Gravesend.

Crew members of a show bearing the neighborhood's name, which was filming nearby, lifted the car to free the boy.

"We went from doing a scene in a movie to actually being part of real life that was movie-like," actor William DeMeo said.

"I turned around and then I just saw a car coming at me, and secondly I blacked out. And then I woke up, like, for the car still dragging me," the victim said.

You can see more of the reunion on "Inside Edition" at 7 p.m. Tuesday on CBS2.
