A man in the right place at the right time – and with the right truck – saved a crash victim's life in Stillwater, Minn.

Scott Rosenberg was driving in a heavy-duty construction truck when he saw a pickup flipped over in a nearby pond. Rosenberg and two other people jumped into action.

Just in time too. Nate Anderson had fallen asleep at the wheel, causing his truck to hit a mailbox, skid through a driveway and flip in the pond. Rosenberg's truck is used to haul concrete pipe and can handle 10,000 pounds at one time, more then enough power to haul Anderson's truck out of the pond.

Anderson had been in the water for five minutes by the time Rosenberg hauled him out. At first he was unresponsive.

"Right at that time, my heart just sank," Rosenberg told WCCO.

Anderson sputtered back to life and rescue crews got him to a hospital, where he spent four days being treated for a broken vertebrae and severed tendons in his hand.

      @0:40 "Truck can haul ten thousand pounds" Really? It looks to me that truck can haul WAY more than that.
