Hollywood actor Danny Trejo, known for his tough-guy roles in such films as "Machete", helped rescue a young boy who was trapped in a vehicle that overturned in a Los Angeles traffic collision on Wednesday.

It wasn't a stunt for an upcoming movie.

The legendary actor proved himself a most excellent samaritan by helping to save a baby trapped in an overturned vehicle on Wednesday.

The 75-year-old actor said he crawled into the wrecked vehicle from one side but could not unbuckle the child's auto seat from that angle, and another bystander, a young woman, was able to undo the buckle. With the help of another bystander, Monica Jackson, they were able to free the child.

But fortunately, not even 24 hours after that public appeal, Joyce was reportedly located - and she's since been termed as safe. Police have launched an appeal to find British YouTuber Marina Joyce who has been missing for ten days.

Trejo said he tried crawling in through a broken window but couldn't get the seat belt unhooked.

KABC-TV reported that nobody was seriously injured, although three people, including the grandmother and young boy, were taken to a hospital for medical evaluation.

While Trejo is being praised for his heroism, he explained to ABC 7 "the only thing that saved that little kid was his auto seat, honest to God". Their injuries were not life threatening.
