A man is recovering after his rescue from a fiery rollover crash was caught on camera.

In the cell phone video you can see the driver trapped in his flipped and flaming car. That's when a Good Samaritan runs up to the burning car and pulls the unconscious man to safety.

Police are investigating the crash that may have been liked to street racing.

The man who came to the rescue is still shaken up by what happened but says he would do it again if he had the chance.

"I knew there was a human life in there I just wasn't going to witness that guy getting roasted," said Santiago Portillo, the Good Samaritan who saved the driver. “I'm not a hero I’m just a human being. I'll do it all over again for anybody."

Police say it’s too early to know if any drivers will face charges. The driver in the video remains in the hospital, but is expected to be ok.
