Crew member from Will Smith's movie saves a woman from a motor home fire

A woman has suffered 3rd degree burns over 30% of her body after an accident with a motor home that caught fire off Interstate 95 near Walterboro. She's alive because a member of the crew for Will Smith's movie "Gemini Man" saw it and stopped to help. 

Tim Hunley from Wilmington Island was on his way home from working on the set of actor Will Smith's movie, Gemini Man, and pulled an  injured woman from the vehicle. He says, when he ran to the scene to help, what he found was disheartening.

"It was twisted metal. You couldn't recognize a cab of a vehicle, where someone might be in there," Hunley said.

Hunley said he hesitated until he noticed movement from inside the motorhome.

"I see a woman and at first I'm thinking I can't go in there I'm going to die," he said. "It's on fire, it's going to blow up at any second. She looks up and she sees me and locks eyes with me, and at that point you're telling yourself you can't. You can't leave that poor woman there to die."

He then unbuckled her seatbelt, took her in his arms, and did what he could to pull her from the flames. She left the wreckage with 30 to 40 percent third-degree burns, according to Colleton fire chief Barry McRoy.  The woman was flown to the Augusta Burn Center. 

Hunley said he is not a religious man, but does believe God has a plan and his purpose that day was part of it.

"I think he might have had me here in Savannah to be on 95 that day to help someone in need," he said.

Authorities say the woman was from Tampa, Florida, and remains in the hospital.
