He doesn't just PLAY a badass hero in the "Machete" movies . . . he lives that life.
Danny was driving in L.A., when he sawa car accident. One of the vehicles was overturned, and there was a young boy inside, strapped into his car seat, hanging upside down.
Danny sprang into action . . . he got out of his car and crawled INSIDE the overturned vehicle, but he couldn't undo the kid's buckle. Another bystander, a young woman, entered from the other side, and WAS able to undo it.
Together, the two brought the kid to safety. The boy's grandmother was also trapped inside the car . . . but they needed to wait for the firefighters to help get her out. As far as we know, she's okay too.
The boy has special needs. . . so Danny tried his best to distract him.
He said, quote, "He was panicked. I said 'Okay, we have to use our superpowers.' So, he screamed 'superpowers' and we started yelling 'superpowers.' I said 'Do this, with the muscles.' He said 'muscles.'"
The whole time, he kept the boy faced away from the accident.
