To most, he plays the Hollywood villain, but United States actor Danny Trejo can add another accolade to his list of accomplishments after rescuing a baby that was trapped in an overturned vehicle in Los Angeles. The female bystander helping Trejo then crawled though from the opposite angle, and was able to successfully unclasp the auto seat buckle, which allowed Trejo to safely pull the baby out from the wreckage.

Trejo, 75, told television station KABC-TV he was on his way to an auto mechanic in L.A.'s Sylmar neighborhood when he saw a motorist run a red light and crash into another vehicle, which flipped over onto its roof in the intersection. "The only thing that saved that little kid was his auto seat, honest to God", he continued.

Trejo and another bystander - a woman who identified herself as Monica Jackson - teamed up to free the child before emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they said.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said three people were transported to a hospital, but no life-threatening injuries were sustained.

A reporter from ABC7 said afterward that Trejo distracted the boy until his grandmother was okay.

The legendary actor leapt into action after witnessing a auto accident in Los Angeles. I said do this, with the muscles. "I kept facing him away from the accident", he recalled.

Trejo, known for his role as the tough guy Machete in various Robert Rodriguez films, was in Sylmar, Calif., when two cars collided, ABC7 first reported. He also advised parents and motorists to "pay attention" to avoid similar situations.
