20 People Rush To Lift Car Off Of Motorcyclist

Twenty people rush to lift a car off of a motorcyclist, Alex James. He had been out riding in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina when a distracted driver hit him from behind. This heart-stopping video will restore your faith in humanity that there are good samaritans out there. 

In the video, you’ll find Alex turning a corner with a friend on the back of his motorcycle; as they round the corner, a car hits them from behind. The woman on the back of the back feels the impact and rolls to get ground as she scrambles to get out of oncoming traffic. 

At the same time, Alex is pinned under the car still on his motorcycle! Those who watched the accident unfold realize there is no time to waste. Immediately several people jump into action to try to lift the car while another samaritan contacts emergency services. 

As bystanders watch, more and more jump in to lift the car off of Alex. Within a minute, twenty people are working together to give the car a good ‘heave-ho’ to lift the car enough to pull Alex out from underneath. 

Alex was released from the hospital and he is not only thankful for those who jumped in to save his life, but he’s also ‘grateful to the man upstairs’ for sparing his life and protecting him from what could’ve been the end of his life. Alex also said that his bike can be replaced but he can’t. 

He knows he is incredibly blessed to live and tell the story of how strangers helped him in his time of need. We may not know what the day holds or what is around the corner, but God does and he is there protecting us and sending help every step of the way. 

John 15:13-14 “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.”
