In the summer of 2013 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Adam Simmons was working on the brakes of his daughter’s SUV when the car jacks collapsed and his leg was pinned under a wheel rotor. He said, “All of a sudden, it collapsed towards me, landed on my leg, pinning me right to the ground.” He added that it was “very painful. I was screaming for help.” Rachael, his 22-year-old daughter, heard him screaming. She said, “I ran out of the house and I saw him under my car. I just lifted so he could get free. It was just the adrenaline rushing right through my body. I don’t know if I would have been able to do it otherwise.” Paramedics took him to a hospital. He has lacerations, and his daughter has a sore back. Mr. Simmons said about his daughter, “She’s my hero for it. I don’t know what would have happened if she wasn’t here to rescue me.”
