Mitt Romney’s son, Josh, posted a photo on Twitter Friday showing a car that had crashed into a home along with a note claiming he rescued four people after the accident. 

“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 wrote. 

Lieutenant Justin Hoyal of the Unified Police of Greater Salt Lake confirmed there was an accident at a home in Holladay, Utah, Thursday evening and that Josh was present when officers arrived.

“When our officers arrived, the driver of the car was getting out of the car,” Hoyal told TPM. “Romney was on the scene and was there in the house with these individuals. Our officers and Romney helped get these individuals outside and to medical attention.”

According to Hoyal, there were four passengers in the car, a husband, his wife, and their two teenage children. Hoyal said the four passengers did not need to be taken to the hospital and were “checked at the scene and released.”

Josh, the third of Mitt’s five sons, lives in Salt Lake County, Utah. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TPM. According to KSL.com, the occupant of the home, which was previously struck by a car once before, also was uninjured
