In August 2013, legendary performer Dick Van Dyke was pulled out of his fiery Jaguar by a very good Samaritan.
Jason Pennington instructed TMZ he was touring on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles when he noticed a gentleman sitting on the helm of a automobile that was engulfed in smoke. Fortunately, Van Dyke made it out unscathed. “It simply began making a noise, and I believed I had a flat at first, then it began to smoke, then it burned to a crisp,” he later recalled to TMZ. “There was a fireman, a nurse, and a cop simply occurred to be passing by. Any individual’s taking care of me,” he added.
Earlier that very same yr, the then 87-year-old celeb opened as much as the Huff Submit about how he managed to remain match. “I’ve at all times exercised, and naturally I’ve at all times danced. I inform folks my motives [for exercising] have modified. In my 30s, I exercised to look good; in my 50s, I exercised to remain match; in my 70s, I exercised to remain ambulatory; and in my 80s, I train to keep away from assisted residing.”
