King Kamali recently helped save a victim in a car accident.
Shahriar Kamali, better known as King Kamali, is a well-known bodybuilder who has remained vocal about the sport. Recently, he used his strength to help someone in danger following a car accident.
On Wednesday, King Kamali posted a video on his Instagram page explaining an incredible story. He was driving with his daughter and saw a car accident. The car was upside down and there was a need for help. Kamali hopped out of the car and went to help any victims.
In his caption on social media, Kamali explains that he had to rip the door of the car off to get to the passenger and proceeded to lift the car to get the victim’s arm out. Unfortunately, the passenger has to have her left hand amputated and suffered broken legs but she is still alive.
“Jesus Christ people… I’m still in shock. Thanking God right now for the strength he has blessed me with because it took everything I had to lift this car off of her arm. Left hand amputated and legs broken but I stayed with her the entire time. The only way to get to her was to rip the fucking door off and I did. #godbewiththem #thankthelordformystrength“

“2 jammed, 1 dislocated and 1 fucked up.. battle scars from yanking a car door off the hinge. It was worth it helping a fellow human being in need. #kingsworld👑🌎“
