DELAND, Fla. (WESH) A man is recovering after a shocking car crash Saturday.

A surveillance camera at a nearby business captured the moment when the car went airborne and flipped several times upon landing.

Witnesses rushed to the driver’s aid, flipping the right side up and pulling the driver to safety through the sunroof.

“People came over with fire extinguishers to put out the fire,” witness Morgan Bissel said. “We flipped the car over and pulled the guy out so he didn’t burn alive.”

Authorities are still investigating the crash.
