Man pushes fiancee out of the way of car Charlottesville

A man was photographed seconds after he heroically pushed his fiancée out of the way of an incoming car and broke his leg in the aftermath of the Charlottesville rally.

Marcus Martin, of Lovingston, Virginia, was a counter-protester at the tragic day's events, marching the streets with his fiancée Marissa Blair and their friends on Saturday afternoon.

When a Dodge Challenger suddenly rammed into the crowd, Martin didn't hesitate to push his bride-to-be out of the way, resulting in him being hit by the accelerating vehicle.

Martin was photographed in mid-air seconds after he saved Blair's life, and other photos reveal that when the car backed up over him, his shoe was dragged off.

Amazingly, Martin survived the 'intentionally' car smash but sustained a broken leg in the horrific incident, as Blair live-streamed the entire event on Facebook.

Blair later informed her Facebook followers that she and Martin were safe following the tragic events. 

She happened to be live-streaming to Facebook when James Alex Fields Jr allegedly drove through a line of innocent counter-protesters. 

People begin to scream 'look out' and a commotion ensues. 

Blair is shoved away from the street and onto the sidewalk, as the videos shakes while the crowd runs for safety.

Blair realizes that Martin isn't with her and begins screaming out his name, trying to find him. In a panic, she says to a friend, 'Where is he, Marcus?'

Blair begins moving through the throngs of injured people, looking for Martin when the video suddenly cuts off.

She returned to Facebook to post an update later that day. She wrote: 'A car intentionally ran through a crowd of peaceful counter protesters. This is right when it happened.' 

Blair wrote on Facebook: 'A car intentionally ran through a crowd of peaceful counter protesters. This is right when it happened. My fiancé pushed me out the way. He got hit, his leg is broke. We're alive'

Blair continued: 'My fiancé pushed me out the way. He got hit, his leg is broke. We're alive. I lost a good friend today. 

'Everyone has an opinion, but we were out there spreading love and not allowing hate groups to terrorize our city! Our country!! 

'The only person is wrong is the person behind that wheel. Feel what you do, but spread LOVE today. Spread LOVE everyday. Promote LOVE.
