Several good Samaritans pulled a St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office supervisor from his burning marked unit after he lost control of the vehicle, and it flipped over and caught fire.

A group of passers-by pulled a Louisiana sheriff's deputy from his burning car following a crash that flipped the vehicle over Saturday.

The crash happened at around 6:45 p.m. as a St. Charles County Sheriff's Office supervisor was leaving his shift in a marked vehicle, WWL-TV reports. The deputy lost control of the vehicle and it flipped over and caught fire.

A couple and other witnesses were able to get the deputy out of the burning vehicle. The deputy was rushed to the hospital and only suffered minor injuries.

“I’m not no hero," said one of the good Samaritans who helped rescue the deputy. "I just did what I thought was right. When I seen a car on fire, upside down, I just assumed somebody was in that car.”
