Mirror- Charlotte Heffelmire is being celebrated as a hero after she lifted a pick-up truck off her dad - and saved her family from a dangerous fire.
Dad Eric was working in the family garage on a GMC pick-up truck when the jack propping up the car slipped and pinned him to the ground, with leaking petrol instantly catching fire.
Fortunately, the 19-year-old high school student from Vienna in Virginia, US, was able to use momentarily incredible strength to free him before propane tanks caught alight.
Eric Heffelmire told NBC Washington : "We had a bunch of propane containers and they were cooking off - just fireballs."
Then, after Charlotte arrived, he recalls: "I felt the weight shift, and I said, 'You almost got it,' and then it was just UGHHHHHHRRR, and suddenly I'm pulled out."
Seeing the fire danger, Charlotte quickly drove the truck on its three wheels away from the property and then sprayed the house with a garden hose until firefighters arrived.
Well, will you get a load of this shit. Everything coming up Seahawks. I thought it was ridiculous that people were saying that it might be the Seahawks year after Blair Walsh shanked a 27 yard game winning field goal, but now I have no choice but to agree with them. I wish I heard about this story when it happened. I would have put my entire net worth on the Seattle hosting the Lombardi Trophy. They have teenage girls developing superhuman strength to save their fans from the crushing weight of burning pickup trucks? The whole fucking garage looks a bomb went off, but wouldn't you know it, the Seahawks fan and his Seahawks themed hood made it out unscathed. Nothing says "this is our year" like having your life, your truck, and your season saved in such dramatic, unpredictable fashion.
Don't get me wrong, I am happy that this guy survived and everything. I just think it's bullshit that his football team gets to advance too. Especially after they were so obviously outplayed yesterday. That doesn't seem fair at all. This fucking asshole probably thinks he's untouchable now. He's just walking around town telling all his fellow 12th men not to worry about the rest of the playoffs because nothing bad can possibly happen to him. You're goddamn right I am jealous, and you should be too, because none of us will ever have as lucky of a year as Eric Heffelmire is currently having. Not only was this guy left for dead, but he was down 10-0 in the 4th quarter of a playoff game and the worst thing to come out of it is a remodeled garage? Is that the going rate for a soul these days? There's not a doubt in my mind that he sold his to the devil, and I can't help but think he's still owed three more playoff victories in exchange for it.
P.S. This incident happened on the night of November 28th, and the Seahawks season was saved by a Jimmy Graham injury November 29th. Coincidence? I think not.
