Tried to save him after car crashed: Paul Walker's friends
Antonio Holmes told a gossip website that he and his friends desperately tried to put out the raging flames using fire extinguishers and free the 'Fast and the Furious' star from his seat belt so he could be pulled out, the Mirror reported.
Holmes said that everyone risked their own lives by attempting to reach into the burning car, but the flames and the heat was so “immense” that they were dragged away by the fire officials when they arrived on the scene.
The friend of the 40-year-old actor said that everyone got a phone call informing them about the accident, and they just jumped into their cars to reach the scene.
Holmes said that as soon as Walker’s loved ones and other friends arrived, they were trying to put out the flames with extinguishers.
He said that it was immense and he saw Paul Walker trapped lying unconscious in the car, as the car was engulfed in flames, but the driver wasn’t visible to him.
Antonio said that he had to grab everyone and pull each other off as they were risking themselves, something that Walker would have done too.
He added that when the firefighters showed up, friends were put into squad cars as they wouldn’t leave the scene.
Walker had been on his way to a charity event for his organisation “Reach Out Worldwide” when the red Porsche he was travelling in hit a tree and burst into flames.
