>>Shepard: THAT’S THE “MACHETE” STAR, DANNY TREJO. NOT ONLY DID HE DO THAT BUT HE HELPED FREE A BABY TRAPPED INSIDE AN SUV AFTER A CRASH YESTERDAY. IT WASN’T A MOVIE AT ALL, IT HAPPENED IN LOS ANGELES, HIS HOMETOWN. HE WATCHED ANOTHER CAR DRIVE THROUGH A RED LIGHT AND CRASHED INTO AN SUV WITH A GRANDMOTHER AND A BABY INSIDE. HE SAID HE TRIED TO CRAWL INTO THE WRECKAGE BUT COULDN’T REACH THE CHILD’S CAR SEAT AND THAT’S WHEN THE ACTOR SAYS A YOUNG WOMAN WAS ABLE TO GET INSIDE AND UNBUCKLED THE BABY AND THEN HE WAS ABLE TO PULL THE CHILD OUT. DANNY TREJO IS WITH US NOW.>>Danny: HI Danny: HI,Danny: HI, Hnny: HI, HOWy: HI, HOW ARE YOU, I AM DANNY TREJO.>>Shepard: WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND?>>Danny: I WAS JUST IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND RIGHT TIME. I GOT INTO THE CAR, BUT I COULDN’T UNBUCKLE THE CAR SEAT. IF THE BABY WASN’T IN THAT CAR SEAT, IT PROBABLY WOULD HAVE DIED BECAUSE IT TORE OFF THE WHOLE BACKSEAT. SO THE LITTLE GIRL, MONICA JACKSON, SHE REACHED HER LITTLE HAND IN, SHE HAD A SMALL ENOUGH HAND TO BE ABLE TO PUSH THAT BUTTON AND THAT’S WHEN I GOT THE KID OUT. MAKE KIDS MOM WORKS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN AND I KNEW IMMEDIATELY THIS KID WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND HE STARTED STIFFENING UP, GOING INTO SHOCK SO I KIND OF STARTED TALKING ABOUT SUPERPOWERS AND YOU HAVE TO USE YOUR SUPER POWERS. AND SO HE FLEXED HIS SUPERPOWERS AND WALKED AWAY FROM THE WRECK. I NOTICED PEOPLE SHAKING THEIR HEADS SAYING, DON’T BRING HIM OVER HERE BECAUSE GRANDMA WAS BLEEDING PRETTY BAD. WHEN THE FIREMAN GOT THERE, THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE JAWS OF LIFE BUT THIS ONE FIREMAN WAS STRONG AND PUSH THE CAR UP. THEY TORE OPEN THE DOOR AND GOT GRANDMA OUT. THEY CLEANED HER OFF WITH MY T-SHIRT, AND THEN GOT ALL THE BLOOD OFF OF HER AND THEN THE FIREMAN SAID, COME BRING THE KID. SO I BROUGHT THE KID AND HE KIND OF CALMED DOWN A LITTLE BIT. AND THEN THE MOM CAME AND MOM WAS FREAKING, AND I SAID BE CALM BECAUSE YOU WILL’S SCARE HIM. AND SHE STARTED TO TELL ME, HE SPECIAL NEEDS, A SPECIAL NEEDS. AND I SAID I KNEW, AND I SAID SUPERPOWER. AND I THINK SHE UNDERSTOOD THAT I KNEW.>>Shepard: WHAT MADE YOU COME UP IN YOUR HEAD AND THINK, SUPERPOWER?>>Danny: YOU KNOW IT’S LIKE SHE ALWAYS SAID TO COME UP DISTRACTION. IF THEY ARE HAVING AN EPISODE, YOU CAN DISTRACT THEM. I THINK HE WAS GOING TO SHOCK BECAUSE I’VE SEEN PEOPLE GET SHOT AND STABBED, WHEN YOU GO INTO SHOCK YOU STIFFEN UP AND HE STARTED STIFFENING UP, SO I JUST KEPT TALKING ABOUT SUPERPOWERS. USE YOUR SUPERPOWERS!>>Shepard: THE KID FROM ECHO PARK STEPS UP AND SAVES THE KID. WHAT WAS YOU ARE FEELING THAT?>>Danny: THE FEELING IS GREAT BUT IT WASN’T JUST ME. IT WAS ME AND JACKSON AND THE FIREMAN, THERE’S A BIG MEXICAN GUY, THEY HELPED ME PULLED THE DOOR OPEN BECAUSE I COULDN’T PULL IT OPEN BY MYSELF BECAUSE IT WAS CRUSHED. AND THEY SAID NO, COME ON, WE CAN DO IT. SO THEY BOTH YANKED THAT DOOR OPEN AND GOT THE KID OUT.>>Shepard: YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHEN IN THE COURSE OF NORMAL EVENTS YOU WILL BE PUT INTO A POSITION WHERE YOU WILL EITHER ACT AND GET IT RIGHT OR STIFFEN UP AND MESS IT UP, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM WITH YOU?>>Danny: YOU KNOW I WAS ON MY WAY CALMLY TO CHUBBY’S AUTOMOTIVE WHERE I WORK ON MY CARS, I’M ONE OF THE CELEBRITIES THAT WORKS ON MY OWN CARS. AND IT JUST HAPPENED. IT’S LIKE, IN THIS WORLD WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP EACH OTHER, THAT’S WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. I THINK THAT’S THE WAY THE GOOD LORD WANTS US TO BE AS JUST HELP EACH OTHER. SO I JUST TRIED TO HELP.>>Shepard: WELL YOU ARE NOT IN A RANDOM DINER, I HEAR THAT’S YOUR PLACE.>>Danny: YES, THAT’S TRAIL’S CANTINA. IT’S ON SUMMA AND COLE LANDAU. THERE IS EIGHT LOCATIONS. AND A DOUGHNUT SHOP ON THE CORNER OF SANTA MONICA AND HIGHLAND, AND WE GOT ANOTHER COUPLE OF LOCATIONS COMING UP. WE HAVE ONE IN WESTWOOD THAT WILL BE TAKE OUT ONLY AND ONE THAT’S DOWNTOWN THAT WILL BE COFFEE, DOUGHNUTS, AND TRAILS TACOS. THAT WAS A GOOD COMMERCIAL.>>Shepard: EVERYBODY IN THE SOUTHLAND, IF YOU ARE IN THE SOUTHLAND AND LISTENING TODAY, IF YOU WANT TO GO INTO ONE OF THOSE SPACES TODAY, YOU GO INTO THE COUNTER AND SAY “SUPERPOWERS” AND EVERYTHING IS FREE. SO ENJOY. [LAUGHTER]>>Danny: AND BY ONE OF THESE, TWO. [LAUGHS] YOU’VE GOT TO PLAY THAT — DON’T TELL ME FOX NEWS WANTS
