Paul Walker’s death, along with his friend Roger Rodas, has affected us all, but Rodas’ 8-year-old son may have been truly traumatized by the horrific accident. Radar Online has reported that Rodas’ young son tried to rescue his father from the burning car, while another man tried to pull out Walker. Radar reports eyewitness Jim Torp giving an account of what happened after the crash:

I ran over afterwards, I was trying to find Roger’s son … I found out his son had jumped the fence and gone over, he was trying to get his dad out. Paul Walker’s best friend was trying to get Paul out of the car while it was still on fire … he was trying to save his friend … there was nothing he could do.

Eyewitness Antonio Holmes gave details of the horrific scene to the NY Daily News:

It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They were trapped.

The NY Daily News also reports:

Coroner Ed Winters said the bodies were so badly burned they would take days to positively identify.

Dental records will be needed.
