Awesome story! Good for her.
People should NOT crawl under cars without redundant safeties. I would never trust a jack, or even a jack stand. I always find something to put
under there with me in case the jack were to fall.
My Mom tells us a story all the time of a truck falling on her Daddy. She was only 4 years old, and she was the only one around, and he took a deep
breath and mustered these words in a calm voice, "Baby girl, go get your momma real fast." She just said OK, and ran off, and when her Mom came out
with her he was passed out under the weight of the truck on his chest. Her mom jacked it up, and he ended up being ok, but I've heard that story so
much that I'm paranoid about crawling under a car! I take extra precautions, especially if I'm all alone, or just have the kids around.
