“I just reacted and did what I could to assist the young woman at the scene."
Shannon Noll has come to the aid of a young woman after a car crashed into a tree and caught fire in northern New South Wales, 16km south of Casino.
The incident occurred on Ellangowan Rd in Ellangowan around 8:50 pm on Saturday.
Upon witnessing the fiery crash, Noll pulled the trapped 18-year-old passenger from the car and began performing CPR until paramedics arrived on the scene at about 8.50 pm, as per the Daily Telegraph.
Sadly, despite the What About Me singer’s best efforts, the woman died at the scene. A male driver, also aged 18, also died on the scene after he was trapped in the burning wreckage.
The victims of the crash were later identified as 18-year-old driver Kobi Roberts-Walker, who was travelling with his 18-year-old girlfriend Jaselle Melrose from home at Ellangowan.
Noll's manager, Paul Paoliello, later confirmed to 7NEWS.com.au that Noll had provided assistance at the horrific scene.

“I can confirm Shannon did provide assistance last night and he is obviously quite shaken up by what happened,” Paoliello said.
Noll later later described the event as a “tragedy” to the Daily Telegraph.
“I just reacted and did what I could to assist the young woman at the scene,” he said.
“Our prayers and condolences go out to their families at this terribly sad time.”
Meanwhile, a volunteer rescue worker described the moment Noll arrived on the scene, saying he “heroically” leapt into action, as he tried to pull the women from the fiery car wreck.
“He’s pretty much got her away from the car as much as he could and heroically done what he could before the police and that arrived,” they said.
Richmond Police District will be investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
