Austin Smith, Michigan Teen, Lifts 2,000-Pound Vehicle Off Trapped Grandpa (VIDEO)

From the Huffington Post:

Austin Smith, a 15-year-old from Ida Township, Mich., was spending a Saturday morning working on a car with his grandfather when tragedy struck, WDIV Detroit reports.

While Austin was inside the car, it shifted and collapsed, pinning his grandpa, Ernest “Papa Ernie” Monhollen, under 2,000 pounds of steel.

“I was just so scared,” Austin told WDIV. “I didn’t know what to do.”

In a burst of love, and most likely adrenaline, Austin was able to lift the front end of the car high enough so that his grandpa could crawl out, WFTS TV reports.

About UWF Center on Aging

The Center on Aging at the University of West Florida was established in the Fall of 2010 when the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences faculty along with assistance from Sponsored Research submitted a grant to the State University System Board of Governors in support of aging initiatives for Northwest Florida. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of aging adults through the application of science to address challenges associated with aging and to promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on prevention. This will be accomplished through inter-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts of basic and applied research, consultation, and partnerships with community agencies. Education and training, direct services to the aging population, and public awareness and understanding of the contributions and needs of elders will be primary objectives.
