Ohio high school football player Zac Clark from Clear Fork is being recognized as a hero after saving his neighbor’s life after lifting a Volkswagen off the guy’s chest after it fell on him. From what I can see on the report, it looks like Zac lifted a Jetta off the guy. They’re listed at about 3,000 pounds.
Zac Clark, 16, was doing yard work with his mother, Lora Clark, this past Saturday at their home in Butler when they suddenly heard their neighbors wife calling for help. They saw her husband pinned beneath their car.
“Without even hesitation, he darted, like sprinted over to the house,” Lora said.
“I guess the jack broke or slipped and the car fell on top of him from the waist up,” Zac said. “Only thing I could see was his legs and he was struggling.”
The 39-year-old father asked not to be identified. He told Fox 8 News he usually uses braces, but wasn’t that day and the bumper was crushing his chest with another part of the car pushing down on his head.
I’m going to need Tom Rinaldi to visit Zac and really dig into the story and find a story inside the story that will make me cry like a 2-year-old baby. I get the sense there’s something even deeper here that Rinaldi can extract. According to the Mansfield News Journal, the man who was crushed is out of the hospital and doing good.
There’s your happy story of the day. Go out there and attack the day.Volkswagen that fell on neighbor of Zac Clark / via Fox 8
