Good Samaritan Burned When Helping Motorist

A Good Samaritan was injured last week in New Braunfels after he went to the aid of a motorist whose vehicle was engulfed in flames. KGBN reports that the man suffered second-degree burns when he went to help the driver out of the car.

The driver had pulled over on the side of Interstate 35 near York Creek after debris become stuck under his vehicle. However, the car dragging the debris caused it to spark and catch on fire. Soon the car became engulfed in flames, as did an acre of grass on the side of the road.

Paramedics treated the bystander at the scene and the driver was not injured. Firefighters had the blaze under control half an hour later.
