What the students reported
“I hear all this noise, and people are telling me: ‘Come help me, come help me!’ So I dropped my stuff and ran out there,” sophomore Theo Roach told KSL-TV.
“We all banded together and started lifting the car,” said Roach, who heard students shouting “lift” in several different languages.
Then he added: “I feel like maybe we don’t look like people who can lift a car, but we still do it.”
Another student, Otuli Simawmiya, told the channel: “I looked under the car and saw the children lying there,” adding: “The mother was saying: Help!” Helps! Help!”, adding: “I was in shock and immediately after that I said to myself: Think about my mother.” I said: What does a man do to your mother?
What did the school principal say?
School principal Chris Crowder said he was proud of how the school’s students called on “all these kids from different countries to help.”
In fact, he continued, “Girls, boys, it doesn’t matter, everyone took a position around the car to lift it and they did it.”
