July 16, 2004 18:58 IST

Salman Khan proved samaritan for two youths who were involved in a car accident in front of the actor's house in suburban Bandra in Mumbai late on Tuesday night.

Khan rushed to help three youths trapped in a car that crashed on an electric pole in front of Galaxy Apartments. He removed them from the car and took them to the nearby Lilawati Hospital, police said.

Unfortunately, one of them, Anzar Darvesh (17), succumbed to injuries while his brother Turaib Darvesh (21) and friend Raunak (20) are recuperating in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. Turaib is studying abroad and was in India on a vacation.
