U.S. reality Tv personality Chris Tolleson turned hero during a recent drive in Virginia after helping to rescue a man from a fiery car crash.

Tolleson, who featured on MTv show Are You the One?, was driving with friends in Virginia Beach several weeks ago when they came across the scene of an accident, where a car had crashed into a tree and burst into flames.

The guys sprang into action and helped to pull an unconscious male from the vehicle to safety moments before the car exploded.

Tolleson suffered minor cuts in the rescue mission, while two of his pals sustained first degree burns from the fire, reports Tmz.com.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to a local hospital by emergency services to seek treatment for serious injuries, although his current status was unknown.
