HS baseball players save two from burning car: 'I’ve never been more scared'

Two quick-acting teens and a third good Samaritan are being hailed as heroes for rushing to save a man and woman trapped in a burning car that crashed in Southern California.
Alex Schrier and Jeffrey Bounds, both 16 and teammates on their high school baseball team, spotted the vehicle on its side and in flames late Friday along a road in Orange County.
Alex dialed 911 while Jeffrey rushed to the car along with an unidentified man who also stopped to help.
“As I got closer I could see the flames getting closer and closer to the main part of the car, and I heard someone screaming,” Jeffrey told the Orange County Register.
The man used a large rock to break through the glass sunroof, and they pulled the trapped passengers — a man in his 20s and a woman in her 40s — out of the burning vehicle
