December 19, 2009

Kansas (ChattahBox) – A man is being hailed as a hero after he pulled a car off of a six year old girl who had been run over outside of her school.

Nick Harris, a 32-year-old father, was dropping his daughter off at school when he saw a car backing up, about to hit a student.

“I was getting ready to pull the emergency brake when I looked up and saw the vehicle backing over her. I didn’t even think. I ran over there as fast as I could, grabbed the rear end of the car and lifted and pushed as hard as I could to get the tire off the child.”

The girl, who was a friend of his daughter’s, had become stuck, with her backpack lodged into the bottom of the car. Directing the woman driving to put her car in neutral and ease forward, he managed to get her out.

He waited with her until her mother, and an ambulance, arrived.

The girl only suffered minor injuries as a consequence of his intervention, and was able to go home from the hospital the same day.

Harris is stunned at what he was able to do.

“I know later on that day I tried a couple different times to lift a car like I did, and I couldn’t do it. But somehow, adrenaline, hand of God, whatever you want to call it, I don’t know how I did it. It just happened.”

“I seen a situation and I handled the situation the way I thought it needed handled. The car had to get off of her. I reacted without thinking. “
