HOLLADAY, Utah -- The son of former presidential nominee Mitt Romney is in the spotlight after he tweeted out a photo Friday.

In the photo, Josh Romney can be seen standing next to the wreckage of a car accident that happened in Holladay Thursday night. 

The photo's caption reads, "Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful."

Josh Romney sent FOX 13 a statement via email regarding the accident. He said he was driving home from a Thanksgiving dinner with his family when he witnessed the crash. He said he was stopped at an intersection at 4500 South when a speeding vehicle drove through the intersection and crashed into a home.

"I drove to the accident site and entered the home where the car had come to a stop on its side," Josh said in an email. "I opened the car door and spoke with the four passengers inside the car. Miraculously, they appeared to have no major injuries. I was able to help each of them get out of the car and lift them down to the ground."

Josh said he's grateful that no one was seriously injured, and was glad to help those affected by the accident.

"What I did to help the people involved in the accident is what anyone else would do who witnessed such a potentially dangerous situation," he said.

      @Red rock… You shouldn’t criticize when you have no information in the details I what happened. The property damage was unfortunate, but nobody died. I would smile and pose for that as well. Red Rock….you’re an idiot!!

    • Insidious

      Yes, as the story indicated, he smiled and posed, then posted to twitter, at which point he immediately shot and killed the four occupants of the vehicle. He truly is a monster. Or he may have done it after getting everyone to safety and ensuring everyones medical needs were attended to.

    Idiots are seriously complaining about this picture? Stop being a pessimist for 5 seconds and realize that he did a good thing, he was excited, he wanted to share his excitement. Get over yourselves.

      EVERYONE would have stopped an helped. Not everyone would have posed and tweeted the pic. Something is lacking in the Romney DNA. They are clueless about social interaction.

        Yep. People are put off by the fact that he felt the need to brag about doing what anyone would have done. Just help people and get on about your day. Not everything has to be about Brownie points or schmoozing. He’s standing there grinning in front of a car going through someone’s home – seems kind of unthinking to me.
