Cape Coral Cops Channel Their Inner Hulk to Save Trapped Mechanic
A Cape Coral man narrowly escaped a car-related disaster that could have turned into a tragic tale. His name is Francisco, and he was playing mechanic under his car’s hood when things took a terrifying turn.
While attempting to swap out his car’s transmission cable, fate decided to test his steel. Suddenly, the car jack gave way, and the entire vehicle became best friends with the ground, crushing Francisco beneath it.
But fear not, according to WFLA, Cape Coral’s very own dynamic duo, Officers Bridges and Klakowicz, were just a phone call away. They didn’t need fancy capes or gadgets. Their superpower was sheer strength. Just like a team of Marvel heroes, they raced to the scene and, with Herculean effort, lifted the car as if it were a feather duster. Francisco’s son-in-law, Carlos, played sidekick, dragging the lucky survivor to safety.
Now, here’s where it gets even more marvelous. The Cape Coral Police Department couldn’t help but compare these officers’ life-saving antics to the Hulk’s feats of strength. It’s not every day you hear about police officers moonlighting as members of the Avengers! Officer Mercedes Phillips called it a real-life Hulk lifting the car, and it’s pretty darn cool.
As for Francisco, he’s currently resting up with an impressive list of battle scars. Seven cracked ribs and a few other broken bones. But guess what? The doctors are calling it a miracle that he’s still kicking! His family, keeping their fingers crossed, is hoping to bring him back home before the week is over.
So, here’s to Francisco, the luckiest guy under a car, and to Officers Bridges and Klakowicz, our unsung car-crushing superheroes. It’s a story that reminds us that sometimes, real-life heroes wear badges and lift cars instead of wearing capes and flying through the sky.
