Teen Lifted Car Off Grandpa

Fifteen-year-old Austin Smith he lifted a car that fell on his grandpa:

Austin Smith said he was working on the 1991 Buick with his grandfather, Ernest "Papa Ernie" Monhollen, at his grandparents' Ida Township home Saturday when the car fell from the cinder blocks holding it up and trapped Monhollen underneath, WDIV-TV, Detroit, reported Tuesday.

"I was just so scared," Smith said. "I didn't know what to do."

Smith said he instinctively grabbed the front end of the 2,000-pound car and was able to lift it enough for his grandfather to get out.

"Probably all the adrenaline," Smith said of how he was able to lift the car. "I mean, I couldn't do it right now."

The teenager claimed that he "has no idea how he was able to lift a 2,000-pound Buick." I, for one, suspect gamma rays: Link - via Weird Universe (Video: ABC7)

Did he lift the front of the car clear of the ground, or just lift one end of the body on the suspension? The former would be very impressive, the latter not so much. Most people could lift one end of the car on the suspension - think see-saw or teeter-totter. Go outside and try it.
