Guitarist Anthony Armstrong of RED was in local Nashville headlines this week, and this time it had nothing to do with his shredding skills. Anthony pulled a man from a burning car and saved his life late Sunday night.
According to the news story, Anthony and another driver both pulled over to the site of the burning vehicle while on the way back from vacation following Fourth of July weekend. They found the driver asleep in the front seat with a blanket over his head. After waking him up, the duo had to untangle him from his seatbelt and drag him to safety.
Anthony shared with news anchors "I honestly thought it was going to be one of those rescue 911 moments from when I was a kid. You know, I'm either going to die saving this guy or we're going to get lucky."
Authorities are still investigating causes of the fire, which took place outside of Mt. Juliet, TN. You can watch the full story here.
