Rescuers lift car off woman with bare hands

DALLAS (KRQE) – Police officers, firefighters and bystanders came to the rescue of a woman trapped underneath her car.

The woman collided on her motorcycle with a car and became trapped underneath. Officers first tried to use a jack, but when that didn’t work, they used their hands.

“All we saw was an arm so we tried to make sure she was still alive, still breathing something, until DFR got there,” said Officer Laura Beddow of the Dallas Police Department.

The woman is recovering at home. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
