A truck driver quickly became a hero last week after a fiery crash on a highway in Mississippi. David Fredericksen got out of his truck with a fire extinguisher and ran to the scene, prompting other drivers to do the same. A woman and a one-year-old child were rescued from the burning car as Fredericksen did his best to douse the flames. Soon after he and others got them out, there was an explosion in the car before a fire truck and police arrived. Fredericksen called in to Fox and Friends this morning, saying he has learned that the woman sustained a broken leg or ankle. "I think about the story in the Bible about the good Samaritan. The car in front of me actually went through the fire and kept on driving. We like to think that, not that we're heroes, but we're just good Americans," he said.

COLUMBUS (Brooks Jarosz) -- The Bureau of Workers Compensation busted 12 people for milking the system, just in June. Undercover video exposed several people convicted of workers compensation fraud. It's millions of dollars going to those who faked injuries or found loopholes. The BWC says it's constantly taking tips to investigate, stop and prosecute workers compensation fraud. Watching one of the surveillance video, you wouldn't think anything is wrong as Brooklyn Mieczkowski is caught on camera outside her home, going to culinary school, or getting physically fit. However, a few weeks later, Mieczkowski is walking with a cane to her BWC hearing. She claimed she was hurt on the job but the video tells a different story. "It still amazes me that people would try to steal a dollar rather than keep that for the legitimate, injured people," Dan Foder said. Dan Foder with the intelligence unit of the BWC has more than 1,000 active investigations right now. Foder says just this past year, they've recovered $60 million from people like Mieczkowski who fake injuries to get benefits. She was charged with fraud and had to pay more than $10,000 back. "We're here to weed out the bad people so those who are entitled to benefits can continue to get those benefits," Foder said. Tips and red flags lead them to others gaming the system, like Shannon Rager, who investigators say was getting money for a leg injury. He was caught on camera walking around and working as a tow truck driver and mechanic. Investigators busted him and mad him pay more than $2,000 to the BWC. "Just know that there's many of us looking for them," Foder said. "However long it takes -- we're watching." If you see fraud, report it to the BWC here.
