‘The Moral High Ground’: Ex-Fireman Brad Luddeke Pulls Man from Burning Car in Santa Suit

A former Texas firefighter dressed in a Santa suit pulled a man from a burning pickup truck right before it exploded, the New York Daily News reports.

The ho-ho-hero was identified as Brad Luddeke of Arlington. And as if saving the life of a complete stranger isn’t cool enough, Luddeke was dressed as St. Nick because he was on his way to deliver toys to children in needy families.

Luddeke was driving in in Coppell, Texas when he came across the burning Ford pickup  with an unidentified driver trapped inside.

“As soon as I grabbed his jacket and pulled him away, I said, ‘Your car’s on fire,’” Luddeke told WFAA. “We turned to leave, and I guess the battery exploded. And that’s when everything went up.”

After saving the man’s life, Luddeke stayed on the scene and directed traffic until authorities arrived. He then left to deliver those presents.

“Santa won’t be late this year, kids,” he is quoted in the New York Daily News. “Santa was just helping out when needed.”
