PORTLAND, Ore. -- Two brothers pulled an Oregon woman from her burning car at a gas station Saturday afternoon, according to KOIN.

The woman became trapped after she accidentally drove into the gas pump and set the car on fire.

The two brothers, Phillipe and Raphael Bittar, who were just driving by, noticed she was trapped and jumped into action.

“I punched it, and then I reached in and I was like, this might hurt, but I have to pull her out as quickly as I could," Phillipe Bittar told KOIN. "So I grabbed her by the shoulders and I kind of just picked her up and took her out and walked away.”

He was treated for cuts on his hand after saving the woman's life.

The driver was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, according to KOIN.

Authorities are still investigating what caused the woman to hit the gas pump.
