Lachlan McLean rips door off car after collision in Australia.

A man that attended Fenton High School as a foreign exchange student has been nicknamed “Hercules” after he helped a man escape a car after it collided with a train Australia.

Lachlan McLean, who was in the Fenton class of 1992, jumped out of the window of the train he was on and ripped the door off a car to help the driver get out of the vehicle after it had slammed into a train, according to Ten News in Australia.

“His car just happened to be right beneath my window,” he said in the Ten News video. “I gave my drink to my mate and I said hang on to this. And I just jumped out and jump down on the car and got down to help him.

“He had blood running down his face and the engine was still running and I was a bit worried about that."

McLean wore a shirt that says “Michigangster” with a Michigan map during the news interview.
