Yes, Texas...there is a Santa Claus.

Former fire-fighter Brad Luddeke was on his way to deliver toys to needy children dressed in a Santa suit. But his sleigh happened upon a man trapped inside a Ford Explorer Sport Trac about to burst into flames just outside Dallas.

Ol' Saint Nick knew just what to do. He pulled the man from the vehicle before the flames consumed the rest of the truck, and then began directing traffic around the burning Ford until emergency responders arrived. No one was seriously harmed in the incident.

Check out the video of a good samaritan who is definitely getting more than coal this weekend in his stocking.
