Danny Trejo hailed as hero after rescuing boy from car wreck

Actor Danny Trejo is being hailed as a real-life hero after he rescued a young boy from the wreckage of a car accident. The "Machete" actor was at an intersection in Los Angeles on Wednesday when an SUV collided with a car. Trejo and others ran over to find a young boy trapped in the overturned SUV. He said he crawled in, and with the help of a female bystander, unbuckled the child's seatbelt and pulled the boy out. The boy's grandmother was freed from the vehicle by firefighters, and there were no serious injuries.
