6-year-old Zac Clark is a high school football player in Ohio, and used his athleticism to save a neighbor's life!
Zac was outside with his mother, Lora, when he noticed his neighbor working under his Volkswagen. Zac then heard a loud bang and screams from his neighbor’s wife. The car had slipped off the jack stand and was crushing the neighbor’s chest!
That’s when Zac sprang into action andlifted the caroff of the man’s chest. While Zac was lifting, Lora was able to pull the neighbor out from under the car and out of danger.
Paramedics say that the man would have died if Zac hadn’t rushed to his rescue and lifted the vehicle enough so the man could slide out.
The neighbor is now home, and expected to make a full recovery.
Zac was honored by his football coach, who described him as courageous and strong -- and willing to take action when called to duty.
Way to go Zac!
