A Reminder That Magic Exists In This World

Just try to read this without being awestruck at the presence of magic in this world.  Please don’t leave comments below about adrenaline, they would be missing the point.

From the Daily News:

A father who was crushed beneath the car he was working on escaped death when his 22-year-old daughter swept in and heroically lifted the vehicle off his body.

Lauren Kornacki’s tremendous act of strength saved the life of her father Alec, who was working on his BMW 525i Saturday in family’s home garage in Glen Allen, Va. Lauren walked outside and found her 52-year-old dad trapped and unconscious.

“He wasn’t breathing. His heart was stopped,” Lauren told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

“His arm was pinned to his chest by the car.”

The jack that was propping the vehicle up had slipped. After screaming for her mother to call 911, a sudden strength propelled Lauren to miraculously lift the car up and shove it away, off her father’s body.

“[I] just kind of threw it, shoved my body as hard as I could, then I came back and dragged him out and started CPR,”
