Teen Saves Woman From Burning Car While Onlookers Heartlessly Record Video

There are still heroes in this world: 19-year-old Phillipe Bittar saved a woman trapped inside a burning car in Beverton, Oregon on Saturday while other onlookers were content to take video of the incident.

There were six bystanders who took videos on their smartphones while a woman was inside. Horrible.

While people were standing by at a Chevron gas station in Beaverton, taking video of a woman trapped inside of her burning car, a 19-year-old came to her rescue.

“I wasn’t really thinking, I just saw her and knew I had to get her out of there before it gets worse,” Phillipe Bittar said after saving the woman’s life Saturday.

One vs. Six. There is still hope for us, but the odds look grim.
