An Englishman is lucky to be alive today after being crushed by a 1963 Corvette being delivered to a Manchester driveway in Great Britain.
Two witnesses somehow lifted the car off the 51-year-old man, who suffered fractured ribs and a punctured lung when the Corvette fell on top of him earlier this week.
The Manchester Evening News reports that the car was being taken off a trailer when the winch cable holding it up snapped, sending the classic C2 Corvette falling onto the man.
Paramedics treated the victim at the site before carrying him to Salford Royal Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition today.
Police examined the hoist and trailer at the scene.
