An off-duty solider has saved two men trapped in a crashed car after tearing apart the windshield with his bare hands in northern China.
The solider, unidentified, first smashed the windshield with a stone, ripped off the toughened glass with his hands, then dragged the pair out of the car.
The heroic rescuer is said to be on his way back to the army after a holiday.
Mobile phone footage emerged online showing a young man in a navy blue puffer jacket tearing the toughened glass apart while other onlookers helped to drag the passengers out.
According to local newspaper, YanZhao Evening Post, a white 4x4 crashed on a highway that connected to a bridge in Anxin, Hebei Province on November 29.
The vehicle toppled and flipped to one side, trapping two men inside.
The car was fuming with smoke and gasoline when onlookers arrived the scene.

I'm surprised he wasn't trained on how to pull the rubber gasket off from around the windshield to quickly and easily remove the entire thing in one go.

one good thing about china is that the younger men are willing to help the elderly and those in need. Not to say people in the western world don't do the same, but in the US, a person doing this could very well get sued for helping.
