Two men save elderly couple from car fire in Beloit

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Two bystanders helped an elderly couple get out of their burning car in Beloit.

It happened Wednesday afternoon, when the car stalled near a Beloit intersection.  

The fire department said a man was trying to wave people down, because smoke was coming from the car's engine -- and the older couple could not open the doors to escape.  

Reports said Kerry Mann grabbed a rock from a roadside and cut one of his hands while breaking the vehicle's windows. Mann and Brendon Golden then helped the couple out of their car.  

It appeared that one of the elderly people in the vehicle needed oxygen to breathe. Mann said he saw an oxygen tank in the back seat.
