Motorcyclist saved from fire ‘Forever in debt’ – US news – Life – msnbc.com
Brandon Wright, the college student who was rescued Monday from beneath a burning car in Logan, Utah, said he was “forever in debt” to the crowd of people who risked their own lives to save him.
“They’re definitely heroes,” Wright said at a news conference Thursday at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah, where he is recovering from broken bones, burns, road rash and a host of other injuries from an accident that has attracted international attention.
The saving of 21-year-old Wright has gone viral on the Internet, fueled by dramatic video of the rescue captured by an office worker in a nearby building. As the video shows, just seconds after Wright grounded his motorcycle to avoid a collision with a black BMW and slid under the burning vehicle, an ad hoc rescue team gathered to lift the car off him.
