Security Guard Helps Save Pedestrian Hit in Multi-Vehicle Crash

After a car crash Saturday morning left two people in serious condition, a bystander jumped into action to aid a pedestrian who was also hit at the scene, officials said. 

Two vehicles collided on Victory Boulevard in North Hollywood at 10:22 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. The impact between the two cars hit a 50-year-old man who was walking on the side of the road. 

"He was breathing when I first got up to him but then he stopped breathing. I didn't feel a pulse so I started CPR," said security guard Charles Wood. "Then he started breathing, on and off until the paramedics came and took over." 

Fire officials confirmed that Wood, who "just happened to be parked" at the scene, saw the collision and rushed to the pedestrian's aid, administering CPR until fire department arrived at the scene. 

The pedestrian was transported to a hospital in grave condition. 

The crash also left a 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman in serious condition.
