Trejo, 75, told television station KABC-TV he was on his way to an auto mechanic in L.A.'s Sylmar neighborhood when he saw a motorist run a red light and crash into another vehicle, which flipped over onto its roof in the intersection. The overturned vehicle was sitting on its roof and had a baby strapped into a auto seat inside.
Video aired by KABC-TV shows Trejo at the crash scene. "A young lady had to crawl through the window because I couldn't get the baby out-I couldn't unbuckle the seat belt", he says, per KTLA5. Another female bystander also stepped in to assist from the other side of the vehicle.
"There was a baby inside and a grandma", Trejo told ABC 7.
Together they pulled the baby safely from the wreckage.
Afterward, he told ABC News cameras, "Pay attention", he said, "And the only thing that saved that little kid was his vehicle seat, honest to God".
