Rescued from burning SUV

Bystanders who rushed to the aid of a family involved in a fiery crash are being hailed as heroes.

The Good Samaritans pulled a family of five from a burning SUV on Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows, Saturday night.

Fire Chief Don Jolley said crews arrived to find the vehicle engulfed in flames, hung up on a concrete barrier.

"There were probably seven or eight bystanders who rolled the vehicle onto its wheels and pulled those people out," Jolley told CTV. "The vehicle was on fire when they did it."

"There's absolutely no question that this family's lives were saved by those people tonight," he said.

One of the occupants of the vehicle remains in hospital in serious condition.
