The Good Samaritan, Anna Cabrera, pulled 10-year-old Zion Jiminez out of a burning vehicle and stayed with him until paramedics arrived.

Cabrera was hanging out with her friend when she heard the crash. She went running towards the scene.

The 18-year-old and other witnesses pulled the 10-year-old from the burning vehicle. His eyes were still open when Cabrera made contact.

"We laid him at the grass at the park and he just like, we were trying to talk to him, converse to him, and he wouldn't respond to us, he wouldn't say nothing, he just was quiet."

Cabrera feels like she was helpful in removing the little boy from the mangled vehicle but she wishes she could have done more.

"He was only 10 years old," she said. "He had a long way to go."
