(KMOV) -- A woman trapped inside a burning car in Pennsylvania has three men to thank for being alive.

 

The woman was driving when she lost control of her car, hit a tree and was knocked unconscious.

Three men passing by pulled over to help. One of them called 9-1-1, but they quickly realized they couldn’t wait for emergency crews to get there.

“Her legs were trapped within the car. I reached in, he pulled the door open, I reached in, pulled her by the arms and started yanking her out of the car,” said rescuer Logan Cook.

“You could see flames coming up from underneath the dash to where her legs were trapped,” said Scott Johnson. “Logan, as he ripped her out, she fell to the ground and that’s when he got under one side of her, I got under the other side and we drug her up the hill.”

Thirty seconds after the men pulled her out, the car was fully engulfed in flames. The woman suffered several serious injuries, but says it could have been her life.
