You gotta see this to believe it honestly. An NFL player rescued a man from burning car, I don’t think I would have the strength to do this!!
In a world where our athletes are under constant scrutiny (sometimes deservedly so), it’s nice to see an amazing story like this NFL player who risked his life to save another. You get a lot of stories like THIS about NFL players that are negative, it’s good to have a positive one!
This Is K.J. Osborn
K.J. Osborn is a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings who was drafted in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He caught 60 passes for 650 yards in the 2022 season scoring five touchdowns (plus another one in the playoffs).
The morning of March 5th, Osborn and his Uber driver helped save a man from his burning vehicle after a crash. The car had flames coming from under the hood, but with the help of two other bystanders, they were able to pull the man out.

The note he posted on social media says in part…
“Last night myself and these 3 absolute heroes helped save a man’s life by rescuing him from a vehicle up in flames after a bad crash, a situation I’d never imagine being a part of in a million years.”
It really is unbelievable the bravery of not only K.J. Osborn but also these kind strangers that can say now that they saved a life! Unlike this photo where he PRETENDED to save the life of teammate T.J. Hockensen.
