New details about the deaths of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas are popping up constantly, and now heartbreaking details about rescue attempts for the star are emerging.

Walker pal Antonio Holmes sped to the scene after hearing about the crash and described the wreckage to the New York Daily News. “It was engulfed in flames,” Holmes said. “There was nothing. They were trapped.”

Holmes and other pals tried putting out the flames with extinguishers to get Walker and Rodas out. “We tried. We tried … Him and his buddy, his brother in arms at heart, just decided to joyride, take a spin. Something we all do.”

Fellow witness James Torp had even more heartwrenching tales. “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.”

Torp continued, “It’s strange. (Walker) made his movies. He lived his life and he died fast and furious today. He loved speed, he loved cars, and he had to die this way. He died in a very fast car with his friend.”
