This 8-year-old was helping his father fix a car one day when the vehicle suddenly collapsed on the dad, crushing him. With no one around to help, somehow the boy was able to get the car off of his father, who was then airlifted to hospital. When asked how he managed to save his dad, the boy replied that “angels” had helped him.

One day, young J.T. Parker, along with his older brother Mason, were helping their father work on a car axle at their home in Sugar City, Idaho. After Mason went inside to tend a cut on his hand, J.T.’s father went to adjust the second axle.

“We were pulling the engine out of the car, and after we got it jacked up, I climbed under there to take the axles off,” Stephen Parker, J.T.’s father recounted. “The one axle came off pretty easily, but the other side wasn’t coming off.”

Suddenly, the car collapsed on Stephen, completely trapping him under its weight. “I yelled to J.T. on the other side of the car, ‘Jack it up quick! Jack it up quick!’” Stephen said. “I couldn’t move at all. 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.’”

J.T. tried jumping on the handle of the jack to get the car off his dad, but as J.T. weighed only 50 pounds (23 kg), it seemed impossible. “It was scary, and I didn’t think that I could jack the car up, but I just kept on trying,” the boy said.

Then, something amazing happened: After 15 minutes of jumping on the jack handle, the car slowly started to rise. Once it had lifted off of his father, the little boy went to get his brother, who called 9-1-1. Fortunately, Stephen was still alive. He was then airlifted in critical condition to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center via helicopter. Although he suffered 13 broken ribs, there was no internal damage.

Fortunately, Stephen recovered quickly, and was able to return home after just two days in the hospital. When asked for some explanation of what happened, Stephen said, “It was just a miracle.” When J.T. was asked how he managed to jack the car, he responded: “Angels.”

Strangely, after they returned home, J.T. tried to lift the car with the jack again, but he was unable to.

Stephen added, “We believe my grandpa, who passed on, and my sister who died were helping him.”

J.T.’s mother, Jodi Parker, concurred: “This whole thing is a miracle. There’s no other way to describe it. 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.”

Although J.T. and his family attribute this incredible rescue to angels, another possible explanation is something known as, “hysterical strength.” Indeed, there have been many instances of people who were put in a life-or-death situation and were able to achieve feats of strength that would, for them, normally be impossible. Accounts of situations where a baby is trapped under a car and the mother is able to lift the car off of her child are not unheard of.

Whether or not it was “angels” or hysterical strength, one thing is certain: the extraordinary power of life and love allows humans to tap into reserves of energy not normally available to us.
