A Good Samaritan used a baseball bat to smash out a window and help rescue a driver trapped inside a Jeep.

The person who recorded the cell phone video in Boca Raton, Florida, told WPLG the driver passed out and hit and a wall, causing the Jeep to fill with smoke.

Gregory Glenn, the man with the bat, told WPLG he knew he was taking a risk but did what he had to do.

Rescuers were then able to shut off the Jeep and pull the driver out. The driver's condition is unknown.
