A Crossfit trainer is being called a hero after he scaled a wall to help a family whose SUV recently overturned on a California highway.

Greg Pena is being called a Good Samaritan ninja after he jumped into action when he heard a crash and saw a plume of smoke on Highway 17. He climbed a 25-feet-high wall to reach the vehicle with a mother, Jessica Magdaleno, and her three young children inside.
