Hero man lifts van off victim

Posted: Updated:

Authorities said a quick-acting man lifted a minivan off a 50-year-old who was trapped underneath when a jack collapsed in Jackson.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reported that 47-year-old Mike Treciak grabbed the Chevrolet Venture by the front, left wheel well and hoisted the vehicle Tuesday afternoon.

Treciak said two other people helped pull the man out. The fire department said that the man already had been freed by the time rescue crews arrived.

The man was taken to a hospital for treatment. The fire department said the man was conscious and alert. His name wasn't released.

There are plans to nominate Treciak for a life-saving award.
