A Good Samaritan came to the rescue of a one year-old girl trapped in a burning truck in Texas.The truck was fully engulfed on the side of the highway. Moments before, the girl's father hit a wild hog on the road and crashed into a tree.

The car immediately burst into flames. The father got out, but his leg was broken and he couldn't get to the girl.

A neighbor heard the crash and ran to the scene.

"One of the other neighbors said there's a baby still in the truck so I jumped in the back of the truck, cut the car seat straps and pulled the baby out," said Tom Porter.

The car was incinerated. Incredibly, the baby was not injured.
