‘Life-savers’ praised after man pulled from under car by Stevenage public

A MAN who was pulled from under a car yesterday (Sunday) after it collapsed on him has the public to thank for “saving his life”.

The East of England Ambulance Service were alerted at 3.47pm to Warwick Road in Stevenage after reports that a car had fallen on to a man while he was working on it.

The man, in his 60s, had already been pulled out from under the car prior to the emergency services arriving by members of the public.

He was treated by paramedics and stabilised at the scene before being taking to Lister Hospital in the town to be treated with slight injuries.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “The man was very lucky indeed not to have sustained serious injuries and the actions and quick thinking of members of the public who rescued him have no doubt saved his life.”
