16-Year-Old Lifts 3,000 Pound Car Off Of Trapped Neighbor To Free Him

A 16-year-old football player from Ohio saved a man’s life—by lifting a car off of him.

Zac Clark was helping his mother Lora with the gardening when they heard a neighbor call for help. The two ran over to see what was happening and arrived at a terrifying scene—a man was trapped under his Volkswagen Passat, and his wife was panicking.

“I guess the jack broke or slipped and the car fell on top of him from the waist up,” Zac told Fox 8 News. “Only thing I could see was his legs and he was struggling.”

The man, who asked to remain unidentified, said he usually uses braces but didn’t that day. He also added that the bumper of the car was crushing his chest and another part of the car was putting pressure on his head.

The situation could have ended very badly. But then Zac sprung into action and literally lifted the 3,000-pound car. Then, his mother and the man’s wife helped roll the man out.

“He had a couple of cracked ribs and his face was messed up pretty bad, but the doctors told him if I wasn’t there then he’d be dead. I just thank God for putting me in the position and giving me the strength to do that,” Zac said.

Zac’s coach, Dave Carrol, said he was not surprised that Zac saved the man’s life.

“He has just a huge heart,” Carroll said. “Here’s a young man who’s been through tragedy himself with his father passing away last summer and he didn’t hesitate at all and saved somebody’s life.”

Zac explained that he was thinking of his father when he lifted the car.

“I wanted to be able to save him to be with his family,” he said.
