Last week in Georgia, people power made a life-saving rescue possible after a driver was trapped under a 3,600-pound car.
A collision launched the 19-year-old motorist through the sunroof as the car flipped over on its head, pinning him underneath without space to expand his chest.
Moments before, Georgia police sergeant Michael Peterson switched on the lights and sirens after seeing a car pass by at high speeds, but after catching up he found it had overturned with three young men clambering out of the passenger doors.
With every moment counting, police body-cam footage captures Peterson speaking with the trapped driver, confirming his life was in the balance, and ordering the teens, some motorists, and other officers who stopped to help to hoist up the nearly 2-ton vehicle while another pulled the victim free.
“C’mon ya’ll, we got this,” Sgt. Peterson can be heard saying.
The Lawrenceville Police Department confirmed that the teen driver had suffered several injuries, but he was recovering in a medical facility. It was the Department’s opinion that without the rapid action of Peterson and the Good Samaritans, he would not have made it.
