Watch Strangers Lift SUV To Rescue Trapped Woman

They didn't think twice about rushing to save her after seeing an SUV run her down on a busy street.

A dramatic rescue unfolded in Manhattan as a 25-year-old woman was left pinned under an SUV after a traffic accident.

Onlookers quickly rushed over to try to free her, using their combined strength to lift the vehicle onto two wheels in order to pull the woman out. One bystander caught the whole ordeal on video:


"The 25-year-old woman miraculously escaped serious injury," according to the NY Daily News

As first responders arrived on the scene, Twitter user @colbydroscher, who posted the video, tweeted an update: "The woman is awake and on her phone."

How can you start something good?

This rescue is a powerful reminder of the good that people can accomplish while working together. Most of us won't be presented with a life or death decision like these folks were, but wouldn't the world be a better place if people got involved instead of just walking on by?
