I think we all know by now that, not all heroes wear capes and this week is nothing new.

A Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Mithil Patel pushed a man out of the way of an out-of-control car and got hit by the car during the process.

A video recorded by news outlet WPEC captures the entire incident.

Patel was investigating a car accident on Monday involving Rony Bottex when another car accident occurred.

The video shows a car spinning out-of-control come towards Bottex and Patel. While Bottex’s back was turned away from the car, Patel saw the car coming and thought quickly.

He immediately pushed Patel out of the car’s path and was hit by the car in the process. The car struck Patel and sent him frailing in the air.

“He pushed me out the way,” Bottex told WPEC. “If it wasn’t for that, I’d be a dead man.”

Bottex also said that he feels that no one would have saved him the way Patel did.

“He had to protect a person he doesn’t even know,” Bottex added. “I don’t believe everybody would do the same.”
The 65-year-old suffered from a fractured leg after the incident. According to USA Today, Patel, 31, was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Patel was reportedly released from the hospital on Tuesday night.
