Does anyone remember Charles Atlas?

Sometimes we're just in the right place at the right time. Not long ago, Lora Clark and her 16-year-old son Zac were in the front yard of their Butler, Ohio, home doing some gardening, until they heard a neighbor lady call out for help. Without hesitation, they both ran to her house where they found her husband (who wishes to remain anonymous) pinned underneath their Volkswagen Passat.

"I guess the jack broke. All I could see was his legs and he was struggling," said Zac. His mother added, "The car was pressing on his head and crushing his ribs." She felt there was no way they could lift the car, but Zac wouldn't give up. Positioning himself at the front near the hood, he managed to lift the car long enough for his mom and the neighbor's wife to pull him out from underneath. He was pretty messed up, but the doctors told Zac, "If you weren't there, he'd be dead." Zac said, "I just thank God for giving me the strength  to do that."
