Captain America to the Rescue!

A real-life version of Captain America rescued people from a burning car recently. Steve Voglezon is a Captain in the United States Army who is stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Last Sunday, Capt. Voglezon was traveling through Chatham County, North Carolina when he came upon a vehicle fire. Being a man of action, Capt. Voglezon stopped to see if there was anyone in need of help.

William Thompson and his wife were trapped in the wreckage of their burning vehicle when Captain Voglezon stopped to help. Acting on instinct, Capt. Voglezon grabbed a fire extinguisher and busted the driver’s side and back window. He then helped the couple to safety.

Capt. Voglezon said that he had no real plan but knew that he had to get them out. He also went on to say that he was not the only hero that day. The fire department, as well as nearly ten others including Paul Mathieson who stopped to help, worked together to save the couple. It is reported on CNN ireport that everyone survived the crash and the fire.

Fittingly, Captain Voglezon happened to be wearing a “Captain America” t-shirt on this day. For the full story, check it out on The Washington Times.
