Alec reportedly weighs 210 pounds and, thanks to the unevenness of the car due to the tire having been removed, Lauren was able to shove it hard enough to tip the car off her father and drag him out of harm's way.
Alec had no oxygen and his heart stopped beating for less than five minutes during the ordeal, according to NBC 12 and Lauren only had to do two sets of mouth-to-mouth before Alec returned to life, just before the ambulance arrived, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Yeah i too have constant thoughts of the car falling on me when I'm underneath one and it's jacked up.
