LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - We're hearing more about the terrifying moments after neighbors found a motorcyclist pinned underneath a car. Witnesses called 911 as a group of people helped lift the car to save the man's life.
Tonight, Marc Clark has been upgraded from critical to serious condition. His father says it was a miracle he made it through.
Dispatch: 911, what is your emergency?
Caller: A motorcycle just crashed and a truck ran him over
Around 9:00 Wednesday night, 911 calls started coming in from Alabama Road near Stafford Creek Boulevard in Lehigh Acres.
Caller: I was inside, me and my mom, and we heard a loud crash. We come outside and there is a motorcycle laying on the ground.
45-year-old marc clark's motorcycle had collided with a car. While lying in the road, he was hit by another driver that did not see him.
Caller: We have a man that's underneath a car on Alabama.
Pinned to the ground, neighbors gathered to try to save Clark's life.
Caller: We need to get the car off him. We need somebody to come get the car off him.
A group lifted the car onto two wheels.
Caller: He's alive. He's alive. He's breathing! He's breathing! They're pulling the car from him.
Part of that group of neighbors was Marie Senffner. "You see it on TV, but when it's right there in front of you, how can you just... this can't be real," Senffner said. "I did it because it needed to be done. I didn't do it for people to say she did this or she did that. I didn't do it for that purpose."
And while very humble about their courageous efforts, the reality that they saved a life is now setting in.
"It just happened," Senffner said, getting emotional. "I don't know where it came from, I have no idea. And, my daughter, she texted me and told me she was proud of me."
Marc Clark's father says his son had surgery Thursday on his pelvis and ankle. He's thankful the neighbors were brave enough to do what they did.
