    Kansas man lifts car off of 6 year old girl

    OTTAWA, Kan. A Kansas mother is praising a neighbor as "Superman" after her 6-year-old daughter told her he somehow found the strength to lift a car off her. The girl escaped with minor injuries after she and neighbor Nick Harris said she was pinned under the vehicle.
    "He really is Superman," Kristen Hough, the child's mother, said Friday of Harris, the man she said saved her daughter, Ashlyn.
    Harris, 32, said he doesn't know how he managed to lift the Mercury sedan off the child. The 5-foot-7, 185-pound Harris said he tried later that day to lift other cars and couldn't.
    "But somehow, adrenaline, hand of God, whatever you want to call it, I don't know how I did it," he said.

    Adrenaline/other hormones.

    Maximal effort.

    Probably lifted it just enough for the kid to squirm out, too...

    And is probably paying for it today as half his body lets him know just how much he over-used it in that effort.

    That is what I was thinking. He probably feels like he was in the car accident.

    I saw someone do something like that some yeas ago while on duty. When I asked him why, he said, "the child looked me in the eyes", and I HAD to.

    Seemed like a good enough answer at the time. We can reach down and do amazing things when we HAVE to....never doubt it.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    I have a good friend of mine (now retired) that did the same thing.

    I've heard of stories like this happening from time to time.

    For those of you who believe, God does work through mysterious ways. Usually through the lives of other people, I have found.
