Hulk Hogan set aside his WWE tough-guy image in real life this weekend.
He came to the aid of a woman involved in a serious car accident. TMZ Sports obtained pictures of the incident.
According to reliable sources, the famous wrestler, along with his wife Sky Daily and a friend, were driving on a Tampa, FL highway on Sunday evening. They witnessed a terrible crash happening right in front of them.
A car was swerving unpredictably across lanes to make a last-minute exit it almost missed. In the process, it bumped into another car, causing it to flip over and tumble.
Upon witnessing the accident, Hulk Hogan and his friend Jake quickly pulled over. They rushed to help the shaken driver, a woman. Since they were the first on the scene, Hulk and Jake played a crucial role in getting her out of the overturned car.
Insiders tell TMZ that Jake used tools from Hulk's stash to pop the woman's airbag. Together, they unfastened her seatbelt and helped her exit the vehicle safely. Paramedics later arrived at the scene, and Hulk and his crew watched on.
According to TMZ's sources, the woman seemed to be alright in the end, and Hulk Hogan was glad to lend a hand.
It was pretty scary, but thankfully, everyone turned out okay in the end. You can imagine the woman who got rescued was probably really surprised to have Hulk Hogan as her hero. Usually, he's the bad guy in the wrestling ring.
It turns out he's not just a tough guy in the ring; when needed, he's super nice and more. Good job, buddy!
At 9:59 AM PT, Hulk Hogan's wife, Sky Daily, shared about the crash, saying, "Last night, after we left dinner in Tampa, we saw a car flip in front of us! I truly admire my husband @hulkhogan and our good buddy @jakerask for springing into action, puncturing the girl's airbag, and getting her quickly out of the car. By all appearances, she was unscathed, just really rattled, which is an absolute miracle!"
At 9:07 AM PT, TMZ Sports got new photos from the crash scene, showing Hulk and his friend being real-life superheroes.
Check out these pictures for a close-up look at what happened. It seems like the accident was really intense - the teenager's car flipped completely upside down, and she's seen stepping out of the vehicle.
You can even spot Hulk's friend, Jake (the Marine), rushing over to assist. It's like a scene from a movie, and thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
At 7:17 AM PT, more surprising info about the accident - TMZ Sports found out that the driver was a young girl, just 17 years old. She was really shaken up by the whole experience.
Also, it turns out that Hulk Hogan's buddy, Jake, who jumped in to help, is actually a Marine!
A big shout-out to TMZ Sports for being the first to report the incident and providing the pictures.
