A 70-year-old woman who was pinned underneath her SUV is in serious but stable condition after several people helped save her in Delaware. The woman was pinned underneath the driver’s side tire of a Hyundai Santa Fe.
Authorities believe the woman got trapped underneath the vehicle after getting out of it and not putting it in park.
Kyle, Kyle’s neighbor, leapt into action to help her. Kyle did not want to be identified.
“She grabbed my leg and said, ‘Kyle don’t leave me.’ I said I’m not going anywhere, we’re going to get you out of here, we’re going to get you safe,”Inside Edition was told by him.
New Castle County police arrived in minutes to help get her out. The SUV was approximately 4,000 pounds and the neighbors helped to lift it to get the woman out.
According to authorities, the woman believed she was going to death.
Mike, her son told Inside Edition she is still recovering from injuries sustained in intensive care unit.
