overturned pickup truck rescue

Men and women are capable of amazing feats when life and death are on the line. The latest example proving this fact can be found in the video after the break, where you'll see a group of heroic strangers lifting an overturned pickup truck just enough to free a helpless passenger.

The accident happened on Interstate 10 just east of Desert Center, California, on Sunday, November 27. A cell phone-wielding bystander recorded the event while a large group of men and women lifted the mangled truck and pulled out a survivor.

Sadly, while the woman freed by the rescuers and another passenger survived, the driver suffered fatal injuries. Westbound traffic on Interstate 10 was reportedly stopped for four hours while the accident was cleaned up. See a pair of videos after the break.
