Man lives after an accident - level 3

Man lives after an accident - level 3

18-09-2011 13:00

A 21-year old motorcyclist who collided with a BMW in Utah was lying under the car without any sign of life. The car was burning but people who saw the accident came to help.

These were people who walked by or workers from a nearby building. They tried to lift the car but at first it was too heavy. The car was 1.8 tons heavy. Then more people came to help while a professor from a local school shot the scene on his camera phone from an upper window of a building. The people managed to lift the car and one man pulled the motorcyclist from under the car.

Rescuers thought the man had already died. But the man wasn’t dead. He was seriously injured but still alive. He was taken by helicopter to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. He is very thankful for everyone that helped him out. These people saved his life.
