"A motorcyclist who was dragged beneath a car Monday in Logan [Utah] was rescued by bystanders who helped police lift the burning car and pull the man out from under the wreckage," The Salt Lake Tribune writes.

It adds that the 21-year-old man, Brandon Wright, "was reported to be in critical condition Monday night."

This video tells the story of the bystanders' efforts better than we can.

ABC 4 News in Salt Lake City has more, and reports that many of those who came to Wright's aid were workers from a nearby construction site.
