How many times have we read on social media or seen on the evening news a story about someone lifting a 3,000 pound automobile single-handedly off of someone? Those incredible feats of strength have no doubt baffled doctors and scientists for decades, even giving the anomaly a clinical name: Hysterical Strength.
Doctors have guessed that during a life-or-death situation the body triggers an over-abundance of adrenaline, which in turn can produce superhuman strength. However, that theory has thus far not been scientifically proven.
This leads us to another probable conclusion: Angels. Or to be more precise, our own guardian angels are watching over us and protecting us in times of need.
How else can we explain the extraordinary event surrounding an 8-year-old little boy from Idaho, weighting just under 50 pounds, lifting a 3,000 pound auto singlehandedly off his dad, without the help of divine intervention?
Little J.T. Parker, from Sugar City, Idaho credits his guardian angel for helping him lift the auto crushing his dad’s body, and ultimately saving his life on the morning of July 30th 2017.
The morning began with J.T.’s dad Stephan Parker asking his 17-year old son Mason, to help him with some maintenance work on the family car parked in the driveway.
However before Steven could do any work on the car, the father and son team needed to first jack-up the car, which required the strength of both of them to actually jack up the car before Steven could finally slide under the auto and begin working on it. Little J.T. of course was right there with his dad and big brother, watching them struggling with the jack, before finally lifting the car.
Everything seemed normal; the maintenance work was going as planned. Until Mason accidentally cut his finger, and rushed into the house to tend to the cut, leaving his dad alone to work on the car. However, when Stephen began removing the second axel, disaster struck.
The 3,000 pound vehicle began to suddenly sway, and before Stephen could roll out of the way, the jack suddenly released, dropping the massive auto on top of him, pinning Steven underneath, and crushing him.
“I couldn’t move at all,” Stephen remembers. “I was totally trapped, and then I passed out. It was all in his hands, and I thought, ‘This is it. There’s no way he can jack up this car because it took my 17-year-old son and I both to jack it up the first time.”
Stunned and in shock at what he had just witnessed, little J.T. quickly realized that it was up to him to save his dad, there was no time to get his brother, he needed to jack up the car “NOW” or his father would die
The terrified boy began jumping up and down on the jack, hoping to get it to move up a notch, however nothing happened.
It tool little J.T. over 15-minutes of adjusting the jack, and jumping up and down on the handle, before the jack began to slowly lift up.
After the horrific accident J.T. recalls; “It was scary, and I didn’t think that I could jack the car up, but I just kept on trying.”
When asked by reporters what made him think he could actually lift up the 3,000 pound vehicle on his own, little J.T. didn’t hesitate, he exclaimed “Angels” helped him.
Stephen was airlifted by helicopter in critical condition sustaining 13 broken ribs, however no internal damage. There’s little doubt that guardian angels were there that day, looking out for Stephen, with the help of little J.T.
Jodi Parker, acknowledged her son’s heroic act stating; “There’s no way that little boy could have done that. I just felt that it was a responsibility we now have to tell people that miracles still exist.”
Adding; “This whole thing is a miracle. There’s no other way to describe it.”
