Two men worshiping at a synagogue in London pulled members of a family from a burning car.

Moses Kupermann of London and a visitor from Israel, identified as a veteran of the Israeli army, pulled an elderly man and a baby, who was in a car seat, from the vehicle after it burst into flames outside a synagogue in Tottenham on Sunday night, the Daily Mail reported.

Two other passengers escaped before an explosion destroyed the car.


“I did what I had to do. I’d definitely do it again,” Kupermann told the British website Jewishnews.co.uk.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police told the Daily Mail that there were “no suspicious circumstances” surrounding the fire in northern London.
