Thank you Denise in Vancouver for this story...WOW!
A California teen is being hailed as a hero for helping free his father earlier this month after being trapped underneath the truck they were working on.
Matthew Wilkinson said despite getting home late on what should have been a normal Monday night, he couldn’t put off working on the brakes on his work truck.
When his teenage son, Dalin, son came out to check on him, he enlisted his help, he said. Working on the vehicle, he said, was something they’d done many times before.
This time, however, the rotor was stuck, but suddenly it popped off and the truck fell. The family’s home security camera captured the terrifying moment.
The accident left Matthew with a punctured lung, broken ribs and a separated shoulder. But while he was in the hospital, he said he couldn’t figure out how he had managed to free himself. It was then, he said, he remembered the surveillance cameras.
At 15, Dalin Wilkinson is a freshman at Oakdale High School. He regularly helps his dad out with work on the vehicle.
Matthew considers his son to be nothing less than a hero
