NAPLES, Fla. - (WBBH/NBC) A Southwest Florida man is making a reputation for himself as a hero.
"If I see someone in distress or anything I'm going to stop and help them. That's the American way," said Tony Strong, who does not consider himself a hero.
On Wednesday, Strong was on his way to work when he drove by a wreck.
He says the car was flipped on the driver's side and the driver was still inside.
"The next thing I know the window started opening and no one else was at the window so I just put my hand in there and said 'come on buddy let's get out of here,' " he said.
He didn't get the person's name but says he appeared to be OK.
"It wasn't the first time I hope it's not the last because I like helping people," Strong said.
In December he saw a trailer on fire and ran inside. He saved a woman and her two children who were inside asleep. In March of 2013 Strong helped to stop a scam against an elderly woman.
Strong says he considers himself lucky - that he's often in the right place at the right time.
