BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - Two bystanders came to the aid of an elderly couple trapped in a burning car in Beloit.

Fire department reports say Kerry Mann and Brendon Golden had to break out the car windows to get the couple out of the car, which had stalled Wednesday afternoon.

Mann says he saw a man waving people down near a Beloit intersection where black smoke was coming from the engine of the couple’s car and they were unable to open the doors. Mann says he noticed an oxygen tank in the back seat.

The Beloit Daily News (https://bit.ly/1pIsOvt ) says Mann grabbed a rock from the side of the road and broke the car window, cutting his hand in the process. Then Mann and Golden were able to help the couple out of the vehicle.
