Man risks own life, pushes burning car out of petrol pump

In a situation where most people would have called the emergency services and then moved to a safe distance, a quick-thinking man decided to take things into his own hands and avoided certain disaster.

In an act of bravery and selflessness, a man in Saudi Arabia used his SUV to push a burning car away from a fuelling station.

A video shared online by @MSDAR_NEWS shows a burning car at a fuel station in Riyadh, next to a pump.

An unidentified man quickly drives right up to the burning vehicle, and pushes it out of the petrol station.

Once the car has been pushed to a safe distance, he quickly reverses his SUV away from the burning car, but not before the front wheel of his own car is in flames. Thankfully, this fire is quickly put out.
