Dick Van Dyke: the actor who keeps cheating death

20 August 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The 87-year-old star had a miracle escape from a burning car on Monday. It's not the first time he has foiled the reaper

Name: Dick Van Dyke.

Age: 87.

Appearance: 50% teeth, 50% twinkle.

Dick Van Dyke is still alive? Yes he is. But you get the feeling that the universe isn't particularly jazzed about this.

Really? Why? He was just rescued from a burning car. It burst into flames as he was driving along the Ventura freeway in Los Angeles, and he was rescued by a group of off-duty nurses who apparently found him slumped over the steering wheel.

Is he Ok? He seems fine. Soon afterwards he tweeted a photo of the melted wreckage along with the caption: "Used Jag for sale Real Cheap!!"

Thank God. An accident like that would have done most people in. Yes, but this is Dick Van Dyke we're talking about. He cheats death on a daily basis. »
