The professional football player in question was none other than the Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver, KJ Osborn. He just so happened to be out on the town in Austin, Texas on a Sunday evening when he was able to assist following a bad car crash. The vehicle had caught on fire!

As Osborn shared on Twitter, “Most of the time, the saying goes, ‘wrong place wrong time.’ But this time I believe God had me, us, at the right place at the right exact time.”

But Osborn wasn’t alone in his act. As he shared, there were three other “heroes” who were able to assist him in pulling the man from the burning car. According to The Buffalo News, Osborn explained that he was driving back home in the back of an Uber when the driver pointed out that there was a car crash. Osborn and his driver, then along with two other people, came together in order to help save the man from his burning vehicle.

Osborn said to ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he even planned on visiting the man while he was recovering in the hospital.

Osborn added on Twitter, “I’ll leave you with this. God is real and his LOVE is real. He will send his angels to be camped around you and provide you with his grace and mercy.”
