Report: Soccer Star Pulled From Burning Car Before It Exploded

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been pulled unconscious from the wreckage of a burning car moments before it exploded, according to reports.

Anderson is said to have spent several hours in the hospital after the crash on a rural road in Braga, Portugal.

Witnesses said the Premier League star owed his life to being pulled "lifeless" from the vehicle shortly before it went up in flames.

The Guardian, quoting local reports, said the 22-year-old had spent the night at the Sardinha Biba nightclub before leaving in an Audi R8.

The crash is believed to have happened at 7 a.m. when the car came off the road and hit the wall of a farm before flying into a field.
