NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Owners of Flaming Amy's in Carolina Beach and Wilmington, Jay and Amy Muxworthy, stopped to help after a fatal crash along River Road last weekend.

Their employees and friends say what Jay did was truly heroic. Jay is still recovering in Chapel Hill from second and third degree burns, injuries he sustained from trying to save those trapped in the burning vehicle.

13-month-old James Andrews died in the crash, but with Jay's help the Good Samaritans saved his mother and sister.

All Flaming Amy's restaurants now have get well cards and banners for customers and employees to sign.

"It just shows everybody who doesn’t know Jay and Amy as personally as we do how amazing they are and they just without a thought, a blink of an eye they’ll just go out of their way to help anybody,” said Katrina Cervero, a Flaming Amy's employee and friend of the couple.
