Actor Danny Trejo used "superpowers" to help rescue a young child trapped in an overturned vehicle, proving that the Machete star is a real-life superhero.
When Trejo and the other Good Samaritan were able to unbuckle the child and free him, the 75-year-old actor says he realized the boy with special needs was panicking. Jackson crawled in on one side of the wreck to unbuckle the boy from his auto seat, and Trejo pulled the child out from the other side.
Danny Trejo was walking in Los Angeles when he witnessed a auto accident unfold right before his eyes. "We got kind of, like, a bond, I guess". Fortunately, a female bystander, Monica Jackson, was able to unbuckle him and Trejo was able to drag the child out, according to CBS Los Angeles. "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. The overturned vehicle that was sitting on its roof still had a baby strapped into a auto seat inside.
"Everything good that has happened to me has happened as a direct result of helping someone else", Trejo told CNN affiliate KABC. From then on, Trejo has been one of the most notable working actors in Hollywood.
At some point, the boy, who was holding on to Trejo amid the chaotic scene, used the actor's cutoff shirt to wipe off his nose, Trejo said.
"It was awesome", Trejo said.

What initially looked like a stunt for an upcoming movie actually turned out to be a real-life experience.
Trejo, who's known for his iconic roll as Machete in Robert Rodriguez's action film series, says he saw one woman apparently not paying attention when she ran a red light. The vehicle, according to Trejo, hit an SUV, causing it to flip over.
