Rescued motorcyclist 'I should have died'

A motorcyclist in the US, who collided with a car and was trapped beneath the burning wreckage, has praised the bystanders who risked their own lives to rescue him.

A group of people in Logan in Utah lifted the car so they could pull 21-year-old Brandon Wright to safety after the accident on Monday. It was all captured on amateur video.

Speaking from his hospital bed Brandon called them "heroes" and said that he "should have died several times".
