Patrick Perry and reporter Brittany Weiss of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, were on their way to report a news story when they witnessed a car accident.

The red car crashed into a tree and flames started coming out from the hood.

The two jumped into action. Perry ran to save the driver while Weiss grabbed a camera and started recording. Another witness called for help.

Perry realized that the 21-year-old woman, who is 7 months pregnant, was stuck in the sports car. He acted quickly. He picked her up and carried her to safety.

Once she was out of danger, Perry placed the woman on the floor, where they waited for emergency workers to arrive. She was then transported to a hospital.

The woman, who was identified as Caitlynn, is said to be in stable condition. Her unborn baby is said to be doing well.
