Actor Danny Trejo Helps Save Baby Trapped in Car in LA

"She was hurt, but all she said was, 'Get my baby. Get my baby,'"

Actor Danny Trejo helped rescue a baby from an overturned vehicle in the Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon, NBC Los Angeles reported.

One vehicle ran a red light and crashed into another, resulting in it flipping over and and trapping a woman and baby inside, Trejo said.

Monica Johnson, who also witnessed the crash, crawled in through the window because the actor was unable to get the baby out due to a seat belt, Trejo said. Johnson undid the seat belt and Trejo got the baby out.

"She was hurt, but all she said was, 'Get my baby. Get my baby,'" Johnson said.

Trejo added, "The only thing that saved that little kid was that car seat--honest to God."

Johnson and Trejo gave interviews to police at the scene and relayed a message to all drivers: "Pay attention!"

The collision occurred around 3:08 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Three people were taken to the hospital but there were no major injuries, LAFD said.
