Watch this Turkish badass save a neighborhood from a burning tanker truck

When a gasoline tanker catches fire at a gas station in Turkey's Izmir province, badass Engin Koçak jumps in and moves it away from the storage tanks to prevent a major explosion. Get this guy an agent.

Yes, it kind of looks like he just set off a trail of burning gasoline that incinerated everything in its path. According to a report, some cars were burned as a result of the trailing fireball, but Koçak — a father of two — did drive the tanker about a half-mile away from the gas station, out of harm's way.


It took 60 firefighters to put out the ensuing blaze, and six people were injured, but none seriously. (Hat tip to m2m!)
