Motorcyclist Rescued By Bystanders Thanks 'All The Heroes'

"I'm forever in debt. I can't thank them enough."

That's the word from Brandon Wright, 21, the young Utah man who was saved on Monday when Good Samaritans came to the rescue after an accident that left him pinned beneath a burning car.

They are all "heroes that put their lives on the line to save mine," Wright said Thursday from his hospital bed in Murray, Utah. The Associated Press has video of Wright offering his appreciation.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Wright suffered a "broken leg, a shattered pelvis, bruised lungs and burned skin," when he and his motorcycle collided with a car. But, thankfully, he is "well on his way to recovery, his doctors said."
