Former Soap Opera Star Becomes A Real-Life Hero

Soap Operas

Many actors have come and gone from The Young And The Restless over the years in roles large and small. Now, this former soap opera star has committed a BIG heroic act in real-life!

Veteran actor Danny Trejo, who played a bartender on YR in 2008 in scenes with Eric Braeden (Victor), posted on Instagram that he stepped in after a car accident occurred in the greater Los Angeles area.

“I helped rescue a baby after driver ran red light, causing two-car crash in Sylmar,” Trejo posted.

KTLA reported that Trejo said the crash happened around 3 p.m. on August 7th and involved a sedan that allegedly ran a red light striking a Ford Explorer.

“A young lady had to crawl through the window because I couldn’t get the baby out — I couldn’t unbuckle the seat belt,” Trejo reported. “She got in and undid the seat belt, I pulled the baby out the other side.”

The actor offers an important bit of advice to share with those on the road: “Pay attention.”

Trejo’s upcoming films include Donny’s Party, Lunar Effect, Black Licorice, and Cover Me, among many others. The Young And The Restless can be seen weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
