Real-Life Hero Rescues Woman From Overturned Truck by Punching Through Windshield

A former college football player has been hailed as a hero after rescuing a woman trapped inside an overturned truck by kicking and punching through the vehicle’s windshield.

Nicholas Lee, a former defensive lineman with Sierra College, can be seen smashing his way through the truck’s windshield in footage filmed by his friend Gerardo Yahuaca on March 6.

Speaking to Storyful, Yahuaca said, “My friend jumped inside without me knowing and started to help the lady out because she was stuck. I started recording without him knowing.”

He added, “Everyone was okay thanks to my friend who is the hero and made sure she was good.”

On Twitter, Lee described how he “decided to help” when he noticed the woman was trapped. “My hand is fine,” he added. Credit: @LalosBoxing via Storyful
