Just call them the Incredible Hulks. About a dozen police officers surrounded a taxi in New York’s South Bronx and lifted it off a man who had been hit by the car.

A video that captured the amazing act of strength by the quick-thinking NYPD on Sunday morning had already caught the attention of the Web.

As a pedestrian lay pinned under the taxi, a group of police and bystanders rushed to circle the car. In a dramatic rescue, the officers lifted the four-door sedan several times so emergency workers could pull free the unnamed victim, who was lying underneath the wheels.

ABC7 reports that the man was rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest and listed in critical condition. Police have not charged the driver.


I can't find the video on youtube to put here so you'll have to go to the link to see it, pretty awesome :)
