The brave man climbed inside the truck when it burst into flames on the side of the road in the town of Nasirabad, in Western India’s Maharashtra State.
The vehicle had been travelling from Amreli in Gujarath and was carrying a cargo of clothing at the time.
The driver had pulled over at the side of the road to grab a snack and had climbed out of the vehicle near the Hotel Soni when the blaze started.
The fire brigade was called but as the blaze worsened, the driver decided to try and climb inside and move it further away from the hotel.
But the front wheels fell into a drain causing the vehicle to topple over, but fortunately the driver was able to free himself and was helped away by bystanders.
Two fire engines later arrived on the scene and extinguish the blaze.
Nashirabad Police confirmed that they were investigating the incident.
